Also, prevented from becoming evidence but read out in court was conversation between LSU coach Will Wade and defendant Christian Dawkins about 2019 recruit Balsa Koprivica who hails from Florida.

One of Gatto's attorneys, Casey Donnelly, said this: "[Wade] is commenting to Christian Dawkins that he can get him what he needs – meaning money – if a player from Florida, Balsa Koprivica, plays for LSU."

From the call, per Donnelly. Dawkins: "Would you want Balsa?" Wade: "Oh, the big kid?" Dawkins: "OK, but there is other [expletive] involved in it." Wade: "I've got to shut the door … I can get you what you need but it's got to work."
Wade may have a problem


Not surprised at all to see Will Wade involved


People will say we can't close, which is true to some extent, but is there any doubt we missed out on recruits over the past decade that we were in line to get, due to being clean?

Unbelievable.
Will it ever end?

Most 18 year old kids can be tempted. I blame the parents and handlers.

I blame the NCAA for having turned a blind eye as the underhanded payments grew to be the seeming norm for elite high school stars to receive from the school’s willing to skirt the rules.

Of course you are 100% correct in that the other side of the equation is lax enforcement and investigation by the NCAA. The power conferences have emasculated the NCAA over the past few years.

Zagoria;
Jim Gatto’s attorney Michael Schacter gave a strong closing in which he argued Adidas, Rick Pitino and Bill Self all knew about the payments and Gatto was simply acting on their behalf to help Adidas and their schools —not to defraud.

This trial is about as revealing as John Stossel's "expose" on professional wrestling. Been happening for years, and this is just a tiny bit of the what goes on year after year since college basketball became a big money sport.

When the trials conclude then the spotlight should shift to the feckless NCAA to utilize information obtained to distribute consequences for deviation by schools and individuals from its Rules.

Given the fact that the burden of proof for NCAA enforcement is substantially less than required for criminal convictions (preponderance vs. beyond a reasonable doubt) there should be no excuse for the NCAA acting in a decisive manner. That having been said expect no meaningful action or reforms from the hypothetical NCAA.
