(BLOOMINGTON) - IU has some answering to do, again, about phone calls from its basketball coaches.

The Indianapolis Star is reporting, as of yesterday, IU Assistant Coach Roshown McLeod and Head Coach Tom Crean made more calls than was allowed to one high school senior last October.

The player in question, Bawa Muniru, a 7-foot, 240-pound senior from Mt. Zion High School in durham, North Carolina, and a native of the African country of Ghana, was called three times on the week of October 19th, when officials are only allowed two calls per week, and Tom Crean called Muniru twice the week before.

According to the Star, IU says each recruit is the responsibility of one assistant, and that assistant will usually call once, and coach Crean will call once.

IU filed the report with the Big Ten, calling it an inadvertent mistake, and penalized themselves by not allowing any recruiting calls on the week of December 7th as a result.
