Officials for the University of Texas and the NCAA are discussing whether the ESPN-owned Longhorn Network can broadcast high school games without providing the Longhorns with an unfair recruiting advantage, David Barron of the Houston Chronicle reports.
NCAA spokesman Erik Christianson emailed Barron to say that the NCAA "is engaged in a conversation with the entities to better understand their plans and what bylaws come into play."
Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds says the school will not be involved in the selection of games that will appear the network.
"ESPN will select the games based on what they feel is best," Dodds said. "We understand that this is a new world and that we're leading the way in an area that is new to us and new to the NCAA and new to ESPN. Like everything else, we will do it in a first-class way, in the light of day, and we will do it the right way."
