The NCAA has lifted recruiting restrictions against Ole Miss but has kept the 2018 postseason bowl ban, the school announced Thursday. Per ESPN:
No longer will Ole Miss be limited to one unofficial visit per student-athlete per academic year. The NCAA Division I Infractions Appeals Committee found that the Committee on Infractions had "abused its discretion" by leveling the penalty as part of its punishment last December, following an investigation that spanned five years and included 21 alleged violations.
Ole Miss, during its appeal, brought up what it argued was contradicting information and procedural errors.
The university appealed several other violations -- including the postseason ban, vacated records and the charge of lack of institutional control -- but was unsuccessful in having those overturned.
