Sept. 26, 2017

Federal law-enforcement officials are expected to arrest at least a half-dozen people and unseal charges Tuesday as part of a wide-ranging investigation into alleged bribery and kickback schemes at several of the country’s top-tier college basketball programs, people familiar with the matter said.

Investigators have been looking at whether coaches at these schools have been paid by outside entities—such as financial advisers, agents, and apparel companies—in exchange for pressuring players to associate with those entities, people familiar with the investigation said. Executives at at least one apparel company are expected to be among those arrested, a person familiar with the matter said.

The investigation is being led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office.

Broadly, the investigation has shed light on the highly competitive recruiting pipeline that brings elite high-school basketball players through Division I college programs and into the professional leagues, and the role played by assistant coaches in that process, the people said.

Corruption scheme? I can't wait to see some details on this. FBI is not some local operation. Sounds like some rocks are being overturned in the NCAA basketball world. I want to see what snakes come crawling out.

Jim Gatto, one of the Adidas' head basketball honchos, being arrested is huge news. Could mean some big names in college are about to drop.

Expect a lot of Fed pressure on assistants to take this up the ladder. All about turning folks.

There should be huge sanctions/penalties imposed on those schools involved, but the NCAA is as corrupt as any governing body so slaps on the wrist are more likely!!!
