ATHENS, GA. (AP) - Georgia admits that it broke NCAA rules in its recruitment of linebacker Ray Drew.

The school sent a letter to the Southeastern Conference saying that two former football players attended a Jan. 28 news conference in which Drew announced his commitment to Georgia. That was a violation of five NCAA bylaws relating to illegal contract before signing a letter-of-intent.

While the ex-players aren’t named in the letter, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and other news outlets reported that Randall Godfrey and David Pollack attended Drew’s news conference at Thomas County Central High School.

Drew signed with the Bulldogs the next week. The self-reported violations will likely be considered minor and handled by the conference.
