A Must-Read Article on Agents and College Basketball

Filed under: Uncategorized — Peter Edmiston @ 7:36 pm

I happened to run across this article from Dan Wetzel and Josh Peter on Yahoo! Sports, and it is a fantastic piece of journalism.  The article describes in explicit detail the new climate of recruiting, outlining the attempted recruitment of Kevin Love by a sports agency.  Love’s AAU coach set up a non-profit organization that received around $300,000 from the sports agency in exchange for the coach steering Love towards that particular agency.  All of the quotes are on the record, and they are damning in their revelations.

Read it, and you’ll gain a tremendous insight into just how messed up the current system really is.  Great, great journalism from these two reporters.

3/12 Addition: Dan Wetzel will join us on the Morning Rush this coming Monday at 7:05 to talk about this subject.  I’m looking forward to talking with him.
