UW’s Raphael Chillious may have committed NCAA violation

Informative story by Sports Illustrated about Division I college basketball recruiting. Washington assistant Raphael Chillious is featured prominently in the piece.
The story may land Chillious and former UCLA assistant Scott Duncan in a bit of hot water for making improper comments about five-star recruit Jordan Tebbutt, a 6-foot-5 junior swingman from Oregon.
College coaches can not comment on prospective student-atheletes who have not signed a letter of intent.
When asked specifically about Duncan, Pac-10 associate commissioner Mike Matthews, told the LA Times: “On the surface of things, it looks like a very, very secondary violation. I wouldn’t expect that the penalty would be terribly severe based on the facts as I understand them so far.”
Chillious was quoted in the SI story about Tebbutt.
“I was the first person Tebbutt saw this morning,” Chillious said. “Other coaches are here for the game, but they weren’t here at 8:15. That stuff adds up.”
Chillious also talked about Justin Jackson, a 15-year-old from Houston. The 6-5 swingman, who is considered a 2014 recruit, didn’t play particularly well when Chillious saw him at a high school tournament game last December.
“This is a Polaroid that you shake off, stick on the refrigerator and date,” Chillious told SI in the story. “Because later on, when Justin’s a senior, I can talk about it. ‘Man, how long ago was it, I saw you play that game in Nederland? Remember? You were in ninth grade. Man, you got so much stronger since then.’ And other coaches won’t have that memory with him.”
Washington’s compliance office is working with conference officials to see if a violation has been committed.
