If you know ANYTHING about college athletics and the NCAA then you know the simplest things can be considered breaking the rules.  For the second time, Drake is involved in a mild NCAA rules violation for Kentucky basketball.

On Oct. 19 of last year, UK reported to the NCAA a “Level III violation” involving Drake, according to an open records request obtained by the Herald-Leader. The violation involved “preferential treatment” after a Drake concert in Chicago on May 29, 2015.

While attending a party after the concert, a member of Drake’s management team recognized the UK player and invited him to meet with the rapper.

Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, met with the UK player for three or four minutes, the report says. The UK player and rapper posed for a picture.

Later, that night, UK guard Tyler Ulis posted a picture of himself with Drake. Ulis is from Chicago.

Following NCAA procedure, UK declared the player ineligible. Eligibility was restored on Oct. 14, 2015.

The NCAA considers Level III as the next-to-least serious violations that can occur. The organization’s rulebook defines it as “isolated or limited in nature.” Any competitive or recruiting advantage is “minimal.”

The first violation with Drake occurred when he posed for pictures with, among others, UK recruit Charles Matthews after attending Big Blue Madness in 2014.
