Justin Hunter Possibly Connected To Agent In Yahoo! Reports

Pretty soon the list of college athletes not connected to an agent will be shorter than the list of players that are connected to an agent.

Last night we detailed the allegations formed by Yahoo! Sports against former Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Tyler Bray and current defensive lineman Maurice Couch.

Apparently they might not be the only Tennessee players connected to one of the agents in the report.

While there are no new allegations, there is now a report that Justin Hunter had a “solid relationship” with John Phillips, one of the agents mentioned by Yahoo! Sports.

This latest revelation is courtesy of Sports Agent Blog.

Further, Sports Agent Blog was told that while Davis may have only provided benefits to a select number of SEC players, he was holding himself out to agents as having “solid relationships” with many others, including LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu, Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter and Arkansas wide receiver Ronnie Wingo Jr.

This is by no means a major story, at least not yet.

It is, however, worth keeping an eye on, especially if the NCAA investigates further.

If you’re a Vol fan, you’re definitely hoping this blows over. History suggests it probably will, but with the NCAA you just never know.

    I guess with the Vols struggling over the last 5 years with Kiffin and Dooley at the helm they probably feel UT has been punished enough. At least I hope so. Just when things are looking up this happens… smh

      I don’t think the repercussions will be too bad.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if there were more players from the UT program who accepted extra benefits from agents, boosters, etc. In my opinion, the lack of discipline displayed on the field last season is indicative of the type of discipline the players may of demonstrated off the field. I hate to say it, but generally speaking, the players didn’t seem to care about playing football, didn’t show respect for the coaching staff or the tradition of the University of Tennessee. As noted in the article, the NCAA is not consistent in how they discipline schools / players in these types of situations. I hope they don’t snoop around too much because I beleive the current implications are just the tip of the iceburg.
