Drake has long been a fan of the Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball team – among many other teams – and, for the second time, that has resulted in a NCAA rules violation for the program.

According to Kentucky.com UK reported a “mild” violation to the NCAA back in October. The incident refers to some “preferential treatment” Drake gave to a Wildcats’ player at a concert back in May.

Per the report, NCAA records state an unnamed player was invited to meet Drake at a party after the show where they chatted for “three or four minutes” and took a picture. This was a Level III violation, which Kentucky.com says is “next-to-least serious violations that can occur.” The incident did result in the player being ruled ineligible, but his eligibility was restored on October 14th. Many believe that player is Tyler Ulis, who posed for this picture with Drake around the time in question.

Drizzy’s Kentucky fandom has drawn the ire of the Internet before and this surely won’t help. Another picture he took with a Kentucky recruit also drew the NCAA’s attention back in 2014 as well, so it may be best for Drake to simply refuse those photo requests from now on, just to be on the safe side.
