SEC Football Players Reportedly Received Improper Benefits 9/12/13
Yahoo Sports is reporting that five SEC players received improper benefits during their college careers, including former Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, casting yet another dark cloud over college sports.
The other players were Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray and defensive lineman Maurice Couch, Mississippi State defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and wide receiver Chad Bumphis.
The report cited text messages and financial records of former Alabama defensive end Luther Davis and an unnamed NFL source who said Davis was a go-between for the players with NFL agents and financial advisers.
All three schools have issued statements saying they are investigating the allegations.
