Says there a guy that knows a guy says the rumors Sunday Nkemdiche getting a job at UMC for his son's recruitment is breaking up Ole Miss's chances there. There is conflicting info in that thread as well.
Regardless, if it comes out that a recruit's parent gets a job at a taxpayer funded institution after the said institution signed the recruit to play football - that would be a huge, huge problem with the NCAA that also comes with legal and political consequences within the state.
I don't know if it true or not... its a message board rumor. But its not a ncaa violation... saban give a parent & a girlfriend a job at bama few yrs back to get a recruit. Its not against the rules
Pretty sure that is 100% against the rules
It's against the rules...

Buyer: o.k. cool. I'll take it.
Scalper: Oh, by the way, do you want tickets to the super bowl for free? I just happen to have 2 in my back pocket. Just take them. I don't need them.
I want Feb 6 to get here just so I don't have to hear about Nkemdiche whatever anymore.

Take note of the last sentence in the examples.
Q: What is an extra benefit? What are some examples?
A: An extra benefit is any special arrangement to provide a student-athlete or the student-athlete?s relatives or friends with a benefit not authorized by NCAA rules. The NCAA allows Texas A&M to provide student-athletes with the following: scholarships to cover tuition, fees, room, board and books; a limited number of complimentary admissions to Aggie athletic events; practice or competition-related apparel; travel; equipment; medical treatment and much more. It is a violation of NCAA rules for a student-athlete to receive benefits not authorized under NCAA guidelines unless the same benefit is available to a segment of a population unrelated to athletics or to all Texas A&M students or their parents/guardians.
Examples of Extra Benefits a Booster CANNOT provide:
Cash or gifts.
The use of personal property (e.g., boats, summer houses/condos, automobiles).
A special discount arrangement or credit on a purchase (e.g. airline tickets, clothing).
Arranging, providing, or co-signing on a loan.
Providing any kind of transportation or the use of a car.
Gifts of food, clothing or equipment.
Arranging or providing free or reduced cost professional services (e.g., free dental or medical services, haircuts, automotive services, laundry, dry cleaning)
The use of a telephone or telephone credit card for free long distance calls.
Entertainment or the purchase of meals or services at commercial establishments.
An invitation to play on your country club golf course or eat a meal there.
A benefit connected with off-campus housing that is not available to all residents (e.g., television sets, electronic equipment, room furnishings, and specialized recreational facilities).
Room, board, or transportation costs (including a stay in your home or transportation to or from a job).
Typing or incurring other costs associated with school projects, reports, or resumes.
Financial rewards for athletic performance.
An honorarium or fee for a speaking engagement or other appearance.
A guarantee of a bond.
Giving tickets to a student-athlete to a Texas A&M or community athletic event (e.g., state high school basketball tournament tickets; high school games, collegiate, professional or any sporting event).
A benefit derived by a student-athlete who sells complimentary tickets to a Texas A&M event.
