Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts issued a statement late Tuesday afternoon to deny any recruiting violations by the men’s basketball team. 

Alberts’ statement said: “I am aware of recent public speculation regarding our men’s basketball program.  Our compliance staff has been in communication with the NCAA today and was told there is no active or pending investigation into our men’s basketball program.  Coach Hoiberg and I have talked, and he has assured me his program is compliant with NCAA rules.”
