Story on Yahoo claims documents found during FBI investigation that Texas G Eric Davis Jr. received $1,500 from ASM Sports.

Statement from CDC to AAS: 

“I was recently made aware of this morning’s report regarding our men’s basketball program. Coach Smart and I have talked, we are gathering facts and will address the situation when we have more information.”

From our Tim Preston: 

Staff is adamant that this was outside of their knowledge and not of their doing. I tend to believe that they weren’t responsible. I’d be pretty surprised if they didn’t know about it. Athletes are notoriously open about benefits they’ve received.

Shaka was brought in during April the spring after Eric signed in November of the prior year.

Not something I’ll give a ton of thought to, but I don’t know if I’d feel the same way if we were 20-8 instead of 16-12.…g-high-profile-players-schools-103338484.html
