The sport of college basketball is under major turmoil right now as the FBI investigation into programs paying players has reached a high point over the last weekend, with a report coming out that Arizona coach Sean Miller had been caught by an intercepted call discussing a payment to ensure that top-ranked recruit Deandre Ayton would play for the Wildcats.
Fox Sports radio host Colin Cowherd said the illegal recruiting is not just a college basketball problem, and that one school in the SEC is taking part in the shenanigans.
“There is a program in the SEC right now that is playing right on the edge,” Cowherd said on Monday. “It’s not Ole Miss bad, but it’s close. My sources tell me in the last year … it ain’t Ole Miss bad, but it’s getting there. Football, with paying players.”
Cowherd wouldn’t name what school he was speaking of, so fans across the conference can start throwing grenades at each other and begin assuming who is guilty.
While a college football program paying players would be nothing new — and wouldn’t be shocking to anyone that has followed the sport closely — it is interesting to hear a national radio host claim that a specific team is definitely doing it now.
