The Federal Bureau of Investigation has reportedly caught the University of Arizona’s head basketball coach, Sean Miller, on a FBI wiretap discussing a payment of $100,000 to Deandre Ayton, a 5 Star recruit, in order to secure his commitment to Arizona. Sean Miller was not present on the sidelines in the Wildcats’ last game against Oregon, and it is unclear when he may return.

 The Miller incident is only one of many violations listed in a Yahoo! Sports report that listed many schools and players, as well as the subsequent violations. Among the schools listed were college basketball blue bloods Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina, Duke, and Arizona. The violations range from Ayton’s $100,000 payment, to minor violations such as meals paid for by NBA agents. The NCAA considers any financial gain from an NBA agent an impermissible benefit, and those found guilty are subject to NCAA sanctions.

 Any player who met with former NBA agent Christian Dawkins has been tied into the report, some unjustly. One example is former Vanderbilt Guard Wade Baldwin IV, who is linked to a $183 charge for a Nashville hotel room. Baldwin has denied the wrongdoing, but due to the report is under fire from college basketball fans and coaches.

 The investigation has not lead to any arrests, but the FBI has raided ASM Sports Management headquarters. They have recorded over 3,000 hours of FBI wiretaps in an effort to incriminate those violating federal law in the corruption of college basketball.

 As of March 1st, 2018, the investigation carries on, exposing the corrupt, fraudulent underbelly of the college basketball world.
