Looks like the University of Tennessee tried to get out in front of a budding scandal:

Documents obtained by ESPN.com via a Freedom of Information Act request show that the University of Tennessee self-reported several NCAA violations involving its men’s basketball team, including nearly 100 impermissible phone calls to various recruits.

The violations, which cover a period of two years, were discovered after the university submitted phone records to the NCAA basketball focus group at the group’s request and involved 10 different recruits.
