CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Three North Carolina colleges are being named in documents detailing potential NCAA violations.
The documents and bank record are part of a federal investigation into the dark underbelly of the college basketball world. They detail expenditures of former NBA agent Andy Miller, his former associate Christian Dawkins, and his agency, ASM Sports. Included are expense reports and balance sheets that detail cash advances, along with entertainment and travel expenses for both high school and college prospects, as well as their families.
Originally reported by Yahoo Sports, the documents detail hundreds of pages from a years-long probe which involved federal authorities monitoring multiple targets and intercepting more than 4,000 calls across 330 days.
Yahoo Sports also reports that the documents reveal “potential NCAA ramifications from the case and show an underground recruiting operation that could create issues – both current and retroactive – for at least 20 Division I basketball programs and more than 25 players.”
Some of the biggest names and programs in the sport appears to violated the NCAA’s amateurism rules. Schools such as Duke, North Carolina, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan State, USC, Alabama, and N.C. State are all listed alongside sport stars such as Michigan State’s Miles Bridges, Alabama’s Collin Sexton and Duke’s Wendell Carter. Yahoo sports also reports that “The amounts tied to players in the case range from basic meals to tens of thousands of dollars.”
