World of Recruiting
« on: October 08, 2018, 09:52:44 PM »
I was listening to sports talk radio today and a journalist (unfortunately never heard a name) was discussing the Brian Bowen situation.  For those not sure who that is, he was a highly regarded recruit that Louisville signed but ultimately cost Rick Pitino his job after it surfaced the family received $100,000.  Bowen's father listed several other financial offers that his family received if his son went to school for them.  He also listed prep schools and AAU programs that was giving this family thousands of dollars.

Here is a link to an article listing all of the money involved:  https://www.sbnation.com/college-basketball/2018/10/5/17941060/brian-bowen-fbi-scandal-offers-creighton-texas-arizona-louisville-nike-adidas

I saw they mentioned Oklahoma State and that assistant under Brad, y'all think there's any chance this could affect us negatively?
