College football recruits visit strip club

Jan. 30, 2013 at 1:53 PM

MIAMI, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Florida International University football coach Ron Turner's problems include a visit by potential recruits to a strip club, escorted by student-athlete hosts.

The incoming coach at the Miami college ordered the Twitter accounts of players Demarkus Perkins and Isame Faciane shut down after an entry by Perkins Sunday morning read, "The recruit was 2funny at strip club tonight."

FIU's official rules regarding visiting recruits, and their hosts, prohibit hosts from entertaining "the prospective student-athlete by attending a gentlemen's club or providing an opportunity for a sexual encounter."

The names of the recruits in the incident were not reported. Perkins and Faciane are still in school and still on the team, The Miami Herald reported Wednesday, but Turner refused to discuss any further disciplinary action.

"Moving forward, I'll be able to do a better job of picking hosts," Turner said. "Obviously, a couple didn't do the right job. That's not something that's acceptable."
