Oregon Ducks Paid 28k to Boosters to Lure Recruits?

We have all be concentrating on Auburn, when Oregon has been shady the whole time? I have to admit Cecil Newton was really shooting for the stars with his $200,000 demands when $28,000 looks like it can get the job done.

Yahoo Sports has the details:

The University of Oregon paid more than $28,000 to two men with ties to multiple recruits who signed letters of intent with the school, Yahoo! Sports has learned.

According to State of Oregon expenditure records, the university paid $25,000 to Will Lyles of Complete Scouting Services in Houston, and $3,745 to Baron Flenory of New Level Athletics. Lyles is a former athletic trainer who recently was serving as a mentor to highly touted Ducks running back recruit Lache Seastrunk. Meanwhile, Flenory runs the Badger Sports Elite 7-on-7 football camps which have featured several celebrated Ducks signees including running back DeAnthony Thomas, defensive back Cliff Harris, defensive back Dior Mathis and wideout Tacoi Sumler. Flenory had a personal training relationship with recent Ducks signee Anthony Wallace.

If Lyles and Flenory aided in or were involved in any way in the recruitment of student athletes to Oregon, they would be classified as boosters by the NCAA, and any payment to them from the school would be considered a violation of Bylaw 13. Bylaw 13 prohibits boosters from directing a recruit to a school.

I am not surprised, are you?

Happens all the time and don’t be surprised if Oregon is put on probation. Everyone is cheating, it is just who is getting caught. Oregon should have just let the recruits parents handle the transactions, the NCAA would have looked the other way.
