The recruiting wars over Fort Bend Marshall quarterback J.W. Ketchum is sure to get heated in the coming months, but the NCAA is turning up the heat on Baylor for improper recruitment of the Buffaloes star.

SI reported that Baylor assistant coach Kendall Briles, son of head coach Art Briles, improperly visited the junior last fall during a non-contact period. The NCAA rules forbid contact with junior prospects or their parents off of campus.

Ketchum, a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, is ranked as the No. 26 athlete in the country by the website and holds offers from LSU, Texas and Oklahoma, among other schools. 

The NCAA could impose sanctions on Baylor that could include a suspension for one game for Kendall Briles and for Art Briles if the organization finds evidence of improper behavior.

The senior Briles denied there were any issues with the NCAA regarding Kendal Briles.
