NORMAN, OKLA. (AP) - After getting in trouble for breaking the NCAA’s rules about recruiting phone calls, Oklahoma is trying to make sure there aren’t more problems lurking on the Internet.

Among safeguards put in place following NCAA sanctions against the men’s basketball program, the university has created a policy with recommendations for athletes’ usage of social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace.

The policy was among documents sent to the NCAA as part of the university’s annual compliance report and released Monday to The Associated Press after an open records request.

Oklahoma also reported that it continues to add rules education programs and software designed to monitor compliance with NCAA rules following major violations by the men’s basketball and football programs.

The school is on probation until next year.
