LSU is self-reporting NCAA and football recruiting violations involving improper telephone contact, transportation and housing involving a former assistant coach and player. LSU’s internal investigation centered on former wide receivers coach D.J. McCarthy — who resigned in December — and defensive lineman Akiem Hicks, a junior college transfer from California who did not play this year during his only season on the team. Hicks left LSU after the season because his scholarship was not renewed.

The Advocate: LSU reports NCAA violations This could get interesting. Aside from the improper telephone contact, Hicks received improper transportation from Kenner (i.e. New Orleans) from McCarthy, and also received reduced rent. He also received approximately $350 in cash and the use of a truck from some unknown football coach (not an LSU coach, apparently, but someone who was coaching at one of the LSU camps). McCarthy also had a cell phone registered under someone else's name that he was presumably calling recruits illegally from, and those violations include at least one other recruit aside from Hicks.
