      COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Clemson reported 15 NCAA violations during the last academic year, although none of them were considered "severe" or "significant" - the two highest levels of infractions.

      The school released its violations report to The Associated Press on Monday after an open records request. The report did not include names of coaches or athletes involved, or most of the sports they played.

      The violations cited included coaches and athletes in one sport receiving nearly $100 more on their NCAA championship per diem than allowed. Another violation described media members talking with prospects before the Florida State football game last October. A men's soccer coach also resent a message on Twitter that included the social media name of a recruit.

      The school said corrective action was taken in each instance.
