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.
