TMZ.com reported early Friday “the NCAA is taking an aggressive look at University of Kentucky basketball players — past and current — and their possible involvement with professional agents.”

In the case of one former Wildcat, we’re told the NCAA wants to know about his relationship with his current agent. We’re told the investigator asked about multiple meetings the agent allegedly had with the player … dating back to the player’s senior year in high school.
The insinuation is the agent had an arrangement with the player before he went to Kentucky.
Such an “arrangement” would constitute an NCAA violation.
Today I looked into TMZ’s report and subsequently confirmed a former Kentucky player the NCAA is indeed investigating.
