AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn self-reported 16 secondary violations for the 2012-13 fiscal year, mostly involving recruiting.

The university released heavily redacted documents detailing the violations on Saturday. The names and sports, and even the signature of athletic director Jay Jacobs, were blacked out.

The most significant self-imposed penalty came when Auburn stopped recruiting a "highly touted" prospect and barred a coach from recruiting off-campus for 90 days in September 2012. The assistant was aware of contact two prospects had with someone who qualified as a representative of athletic interests in June.

Jacobs wrote to Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive that it was "a mistake and not an attempt to get a recruiting advantage."

Most of the other violations involved improper contact with recruits.
