By news admin

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee has self-reported 10 secondary violations since June, including one each in football and men's basketball.

The university's compliance department posted the violations and subsequent punishments on its website.

The basketball violation involved hosting a prospect on a July unofficial visit that wasn't permitted under NCAA rules. The football violation involved sending a recruiting letter with an impermissible mailing label.

The officials involved received rules education as part of their punishments. A compliance staff member received a letter of admonishment for the basketball violation. The basketball recruit was declared ineligible at Tennessee and must go through a reinstatement process should he choose to sign with the Volunteers.

Tennessee also reported three violations in volleyball, two in swimming and one each by women's basketball, men's tennis and media relations.
