The Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Program has reported a NCAA violation involving who else but their biggest rap fan, Drake. According to Kentucky Sports, the Toronto rap star has allegedly committed a “Level III” violation involving “preferential treatment” with one of the Universiy of Kentucky’s basketball players.
According to the report, the violation happened at an after-party following Drake’s recent concert in Chicago. Someone from Drake’s management recognized an undisclosed UK ball player, and invited him to meet with the star. The two talked for three-to-four minutes, and took a picture. The player, currently undisclosed, may possibly be UK guard Tyler Ulis, who ended up posting a picture with Drake that same night. Ulis is from Chicago.
Because of the minor violation, Ulis was deemed ineligible for a while. However, he was able to return to practice and play with his teammates in October.
This isn’t the first time Drake has been in trouble with the NCAA. In 2014, he was issued a cease and desist letter from following his appearance at Blue Madness that same year.
The University has not commented on the recent violation
