The potential rules violations involve players at numerous country's top college basketball programs, including Duke, Kentucky, Michigan State and North Carolina.

Well, now. Maybe there's a chance that the problems that have long permeated the NCAA and college basketball will be finally be addressed.

"These allegations, if true, point to systematic failures that must be fixed and fixed now if we want college sports in America", NCAA president Mark Emmert said. Aside from direct loans to players, many of their parents also got meals, plane tickets and other cash advances.

"I've been so in a tunnel, in a cave with my own team, I'm not up to date on it", Krzyzewski said at the time. They also reveal the extent of the potential NCAA ramifications from the case. "We're talking about in some instances kids receiving $30 meals from agents", Jackson said.

According to a Yahoo Sports report, 25 current and former college basketball players from programs such as Duke, North Carolina and Kentucky received money from former NBA agent Andy Miller and his agency ASM Sports, including former Husky star Markelle Fultz.

The documents are believed to detail payments made to athletes through a sports agency that represents several top N.B.A. players. He did not sign with ASM. Newbill graduated in 2015, and it is unclear when exactly he received the loan. The size of payments and loans listed range from meals to tens of thousands of dollars.

United Kingdom student Alan Hamilton of Louisville believes there are similar issues across the college basketball spectrum.

Kentucky athletics director Mitch Barnhart said in a statement early Friday the school is looking into the allegations. "Coach (Larry) Krystkowiak has a great deal of integrity and runs a clean program, but this situation shows there are areas outside a coach's control that need to be fixed".

What will happen to the schools and even coaches listed is to be determined. "I'm not surprised by any of it". A Yahoo Sports report today included information from documents and bank records.

"This goes a lot deeper in college basketball than four corrupt assistant coaches", Thamel reported via an anonymous source last week.

If O'Quinn did take money from Miller and ASM Sports it would violate NCAA amateurism rules and mean he would have been ineligible to play. All evidence is linked to former National Basketball Association agent Andy Miller and his associate, Christian Dawkins. If the FBI is truly serious about bringing about change, the investigation has only just begun.
