Allegations have come up that a former Mississippi State football player named Kenny Rogers allegedly solicited money from school officials in exchange for Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton’s signature on a Letter of Intent.
A man who said he represented Newton during his recruitment out of junior college last year asked for payment to secure his commitment to Mississippi State, according to former MSU player John Bond.
ESPN.com, which first reported the story, is citing unidentified people saying Rogers was the one soliciting payment. ESPN.com reports the school refused to get involved with Rogers, who has separately come under scrutiny from the NFL Players Association and the NCAA.
Mississippi State and Newton’s father Cecil have cooperated with the NCAA. It appears as though Cameron, his family and MSU had nothing to do with the situation although more details are likely forthcoming.
