Federal documents reveal P.J. Dozier took money from agent while at South Carolina

P.J. Dozier was a major piece of the South Carolina basketball team that made a thrilling run to the Final Four last season, but now his name is surfacing in the college basketball world for all the wrong reasons.

The former Gamecocks star is one of the players whose name appears on Federal documents obtained by Yahoo! Sports’ Pat Forde and Pete Thamel. The report, which was published on Friday, takes a look at Federal documents obtained on the “expenditures of prominent former NBA agent Andy Miller, his former associate Christian Dawkins and his agency, ASM Sports.”

A look into the balance sheets from ASM Sports, which were dated at the end of 2015, Dozier is listed to have received at least $6,115 from the agency while in school at South Carolina.

Dozier was listed among a wide variety of college basketball stars who either met with the agency or accepted loans from them in recent seasons. Former Kentucky stars Nerlens Noel and Bam Adebayo also were implicated in the documents, as well as current Alabama guard Collin Sexton.

Forde and Thamel also spotted this detail on current South Carolina player Brian Bowen, who already has involvement in the investigation from attempting to start his college basketball career at Louisville.

Current South Carolina player Brian Bowen, who was ensnared in the initial federal investigation and started his career at Louisville last fall until the school withheld him from competition. His father, Brian Sr., also received money, according to the documents. (Dawkins’ expense reports also list more than $1,500 in plane tickets for Bowen, his father and his mother. He and his family received at least $7,000 in benefits, according to the documents.)

The implication of Dozier and Bowen in these documents does not necessarily indicate there was any involvement or direct knowledge for South Carolina or Coach Frank Martin. The university has not yet commented on the details of this report.
