Former Kansas star Josh Jackson implicated in FBI corruption investigation

Former Kansas forward Josh Jackson may have received impermissible benefits during his time with the Jayhawks, according to documents obtained during a federal investigation into corruption in college basketball.

According to Yahoo Sports’ Pat Forde and Pete Thamel, expense reports from the agency ASM Sports list $2,700 given to Jackson’s mother while he was playing for Kansas. It’s one of numerous payments to current and former college players outlined in the agency’s expense reports and balance sheets.

The alleged payment would constitute an NCAA violation since Jackson was still an NCAA student-athlete, and could lead to penalties for the Kansas basketball program.

Jackson played one season for the Jayhawks before entering the 2017 NBA Draft. He was selected fourth overall by the Phoenix Suns.
