NCAA - Players Named In FBI Corruption Probe (Duke, Kentucky)

A bombshell report out of the NCAA Basketball organization today as it would appear that the FBI’s probe into corruption now includes players like Duke’s Wendell Carter, Michigan State’s Miles Bridges, former Kentucky player Bam Adebayo and Alabama’s Collin Sexton.

Knowing the possible reaction from the public, NCAA president Mark Emmert was quick to launch a statement: “These allegations, if true, point to systematic failures that must be fixed and fixed now if we want college sports in America. Simply put, people who engage in this kind of behavior have no place in college sports.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Names dropped in the Yahoo report regarding the FBI’s NCAA investigation<br><br>Miles Bridges<br>Colin Sexton<br>Markelle Fultz <br>Kyle Kuzma<br>Wendell Carter<br>Dennis Smith Jr<br>… And the list goes on. <br><br>Don’t blame the players. Blame coaches, recruiters, and most importantly, the NCAA</p>&mdash; John Ryan (@JohnRyanNBA) <a href="">February 23, 2018</a></blockquote>

“They are an affront to all those who play by the rules. Following the Southern District of New York’s indictments last year, the NCAA Board of Governors and I formed the independent Commission on College Basketball, chaired by Condoleezza Rice, to provide recommendations on how to clean up the sport. With these latest allegations, it’s clear this work is more important now than ever.”

“The Board and I are completely committed to making transformational changes to the game and ensuring all involved in college basketball do so with integrity. We also will continue to cooperate with the efforts of federal prosecutors to identify and punish the unscrupulous parties seeking to exploit the system through criminal acts.”

The charges link disgraced NBA agent Andy Miller and associate Christian Dawkins to various college basketball players.

The documents obtained by the FBI show payments going directly to players. At least six of them receive monies in excess of $10,000. Not bad for college students.

Allegedly, former player Dennis Smith received $43K in payments and $113K in loans.
