Former USC RB Joe McKnight Accused of Accepting Car From Booster

Remember when Joe McKnight got into his feelings when he was made fun of on Hard Knocks for taking a pay cut to come play for the Jets?

Might have been accurate.

A key figure in the ongoing corruption scandal at the Los Angeles County assessor’s office said he gave cash and perks worth thousands of dollars to two USC athletes while they were still in school, actions that could violate college sports rules.

The allegations are contained among hundreds of Scott Schenter’s county work emails that suggest the former appraiser provided football star Joe McKnight with a car and an airline ticket, and basketball player Davon Jefferson with about $3,700 in cash. The Times obtained the emails from the assessor’s office under the California Public Records Act.
