The Kansas Jayhawks are expected to face multiple major violation allegations from the NCAA. This is obviously a direct result of basketball related issues. This news was broken by the Kansas City Star.
According to the report, the university is expecting a formal notice of allegations from the governing body of college sports. The Kansas City Star did reach out to Kansas for comment, but Dan Beckler, associate athletic director for public relations for the Jayhawks, told said they had not received any notification from the NCAA.
The Star did provide some context as to why, most likely, this is happening to the Kansas Jayhawks:
Former Adidas employee T.J. Gassnola testified in federal court last October that he made payments of $90,000 on behalf of Adidas to the mother of KU basketball player Billy Preston and $2,500 to the guardian of Silvio De Sousa. Gassnola also said he agreed to pay $20,000 to Fenny Falmagne, the guardian of De Sousa, to help Falmagne exit an agreement to send De Sousa to Maryland, an Under Armour school.
“Due to member-created rules, we cannot comment on current, pending or potential investigations,” Stacey Osburn, NCAA director of public and media relations, wrote in an email to the Kansas City Star in response for a comment.
Obviously, with the FBI scandal forever looming over nearly every college basketball program, eyes have been tilted toward the Kansas Jayhawks and Bill Self for well over a year.
