Five-star prospect Immanuel Quickley announced Friday that he plans to play college basketball in the 2018-19 season for Hall of Fame coach John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats.

Quickley picked UK over Kansas and Miami.

He's No. 8 in 247Sports' Class of 2018 Composite Rankings -- and the first 2018 prospect to commit to the Wildcats. The 6-foot-3 point guard averaged 23.7 points and 7.2 assists last season at The John Carroll School in Maryland. He spent the summer playing for the United States' FIBA U-19 World Cup team that Calipari coached to a silver medal in Egypt.

No sabía que Bagley se iba a Duke. Son complementarios Wendell y él? Bagley tiene tiro exterior o es más un 5?
Tengo ganas de ver como funciona todo este asunto.

Me estoy poniendo un poco al día de los recruits con Vandy y el 2018 puede ser una salvajada para lo que estamos acostumbrados.

Si es verdad que Garland y Langford quieren ir juntos a Vanderbilt , sería algo increíble. 2 recruits de 5 estrellas, ni en los mejores sueños :amor:

Four assistant basketball coaches from Arizona, Auburn, Oklahoma State and Southern California were among those arrested on federal corruption charges Tuesday after they were caught taking thousands of dollars in bribes to steer NBA-destined college stars toward certain sports agents and financial advisers, authorities said.

The coaches named in court documents are Auburn's Chuck Person, Oklahoma State's Lamont Evans, Arizona's Emanuel "Book" Richardson and USC's Tony Bland. It was not immediately clear who would represent them at initial court appearances.

Also charged in Manhattan federal court were managers, financial advisers and representatives of a major international sportswear company.

"The picture painted by the charges brought today is not a pretty one,'' Joon H. Kim, the acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said at a Tuesday news conference. "Coaches at some of the nation's top programs soliciting and accepting cash bribes. Managers and financial advisers circling blue-chip prospects like coyotes. And employees of one of the world's largest sportswear companies secretly funneling cash to the families of high school recruits."

"For the 10 charged men, the madness of college basketball went well beyond the Big Dance in March," Kim said. "Month after month, the defendants exploited the hoop dreams of student-athletes around the country, allegedly treating them as little more than opportunities to enrich themselves through bribery and fraud schemes."

Auburn said in a statement that Person is suspended without pay effective immediately. "This morning's news is shocking. ... We are committed to playing by the rules, and that's what we expect from our coaches," the statement said.

NCAA spokeswoman Gail Dent, when asked for a statement from the NCAA, said, "Nothing on this end. We'll let you know if that changes."

Other people named in the documents include:

James Gatto, director of global sports marketing at Adidas;

Merl Code, who recently left Nike for Adidas;

Christian Dawkins, an NBA agent who was fired in May from ASM Sports for charging approximately $42,000 in Uber charges on a player's credit card;

Jonathan Brad Augustine, president of The League Initiative and program director of the Adidas-sponsored 1 Family AAU program;

Munish Sood, a financial adviser;

Rashan Michel, a former NBA official who founded Thompson Bespoke Clothing, a custom clothier for athletes.

The FBI complaint against Gatto and others also includes a reference to a "public research university located in Kentucky," and sources told ESPN that it's the University of Louisville. The complaint says the school has an enrollment of approximately 22,640, which matches Louisville's during the 2016-17 academic year, and that the school offers approximately 21 varsity sports teams, which is the number the Cardinals offer, according to the athletics department's website.

The allegations against the unnamed school in Kentucky, which is identified as "University-6" in the complaint, include payments of $100,000 from a sports apparel company to the family of an unnamed player, identified as "Player 10," to ensure him signing with the school.

In a sworn statement from FBI agent John Vourderis, he wrote: "I have learned that in or around May of 2017, at the request of at least once coach from University-6, Dawkins, James Gatto, a/k/a "Jim," Merl Code, Munish Sood, the defendants, and other agreed to funnel $100,000 (payable in four installments) from Company-1 to the family of Player-10. Shortly after the agreement with the family of Player-10 was reached in late May or early June, Player-10 publicly committed to University-6."

The indictment also says that prior to paying Player-10's family, the defendants "first needed time to generate a sham purchase order and invoice ostensibly to justify using Company-1 funds since they could not lawfully pay the family of Player-10 directly and risk that such prohibited payments be revealed."

A University of Louisville athletics department spokesperson said the school was unaware of the investigation until Tuesday and didn't yet have a statement. High-ranking members of the Louisville athletics department were meeting on Tuesday morning.

Since 2015, the FBI has been investigating the criminal influence of money on coaches and student-athletes in the NCAA, federal authorities said.

They said the probe has revealed numerous instances in which bribes were paid by athlete advisers, such as financial advisers and associate coaches, to other coaches to exert influence over student-athletes so the athletes would use the services of those paying the bribes.

In criminal complaints, investigators said coaches can provide access for the student-athletes to sports agents, financial advisers, business managers and others.

"Moreover, many such coaches have enormous influence over the student-athletes who play for them, in particular with respect to guiding those student-athletes through the process of selecting agents and other advisers when they prepare to leave college and enter the NBA," the complaints said.

"The investigation has revealed several instances in which coaches have exercised that influence by steering players and their families to retain particular advisers, not because of the merits of those advisers, but because the coaches were being bribed by the advisers to do so," the papers said.

Court documents state that Gatto, Code, Dawkins, Augustine and Sood allegedly made bribes to at least three high school players and/or their families. One situation involved $100,000 to commit to play at an Adidas-sponsored school. The second involved payments to commit to a certain school and then retain Dawkins' services. The third involved as much as $150,000 to attend an Adidas-sponsored school, sign with Dawkins and also sign with Adidas.

Documents also state that Michel offered Person $50,000 in bribe payments "in exchange for using his official position at University-1 to steer student-athletes on University-1's NCAA Division I men's basketball team to retain the services of CW-1 and Michel."

According to court documents, Evans, Richardson and Bland all allegedly received benefits from Dawkins and Sood to influence student-athletes to use their services.

In a statement Tuesday, Adidas said it was unaware whether Gatto was allegedly arranging to pay high school players. "Today, we became aware that federal investigators arrested an adidas employee," the company said. "We are learning more about the situation. We're unaware of any misconduct and will fully cooperate with authorities to understand more."

Person, 53, is the associate head coach at Auburn; he joined the staff in April 2014. Person averaged 18.3 points per game in four seasons at Auburn and was the NBA Rookie of the Year for the Indiana Pacers in 1987. He played for five NBA teams over 13 seasons.

Evans joined the Oklahoma State staff last season and was promoted to associate head coach and recruiting coordinator for the upcoming season. He coached previously at South Carolina and Kansas State. He averaged 8.5 points as a senior for Drake in 2000-01.

"We were surprised to learn this morning of potential actions against one of our assistant basketball coaches by federal officials," read a statement from Oklahoma State. "We are reviewing and investigating the allegations. We are cooperating fully with officials. Let it be clear we take very seriously the high standards of conduct expected in our athletic department. We will not tolerate any deviation from those standards."

Richardson joined the staff at Arizona in the spring of 2009. He played collegiately at University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

Bland, an associated head coach, joined the USC staff in 2013-14. He played for Syracuse and San Diego State.

"We were shocked to learn this morning through news reports about the FBI investigation and arrests related to NCAA basketball programs, including the arrest of USC assistant coach Tony Bland," USC athletic director Lynn Swann said in a Tuesday statement. "USC Athletics maintains the highest standards in athletic compliance across all of our programs and does not tolerate misconduct in any way. We will fully cooperate with the investigation and will assist authorities as needed, and if these allegations are true, we will take the needed action."

The FBI investigation into NCAA basketball corruption alleges that an Adidas executive conspired to pay $100,000 to the family of a top-ranked national recruit to play at Louisville and to represent Adidas when he turned pro.

The recruit is identified only as “Player-10” in one of three federal criminal complaints released Tuesday. His family was to be paid in four installments.

Player-10 is said to have committed to University-6 on or about June 3, 2017, “or almost immediately after the illicit bribe scheme.”

The only 2017 prospect who committed to the University of Louisville on that date and fits that description is five-star recruit Brian Bowen, an incoming freshman on this season’s Louisville team.


Se dice que esto podría provocar la renuncia de Pitino.

Todavía es pronto para saber si esto va a ser solamente un gran escándalo o el mayor golpe en la historia del baloncesto universitario. Todo dependerá de la evolución del caso, de la investigación del FBI que sigue su curso. En estos momentos estamos en plena fase de exaltación de la hipocresía, cuando cada uno trata de situarse de manera que la figura resultante sea lo más decorosa posible. Unos muestran su total abatimiento y más que sincero dolor, y otros recurren al cínico y previsible ''pero si esto siempre ha funcionado así...''. En cualquier caso, una vez representada la farsa de rigor, habrá que ver cuáles son las consecuencias reales de este asunto.

Lo que sí sabemos --hace años que lo sabemos-- es que resulta imposible mantener a los jugadores en una isla de supuesto amateurismo en medio de un océano de gigantescos intereses económicos. Simplemente no se puede, porque las costuras saltan por todas partes. Al final de esta historia quizás nos encontremos con una modificación de las reglas de la NCAA, una que permita a los jugadores explotar comercialmente su imagen sin abandonar su condición normativa de estudiantes. Eso es lo que ellos quieren, lo que sus familias quieren, lo que sus agentes quieren, y por supuesto que lo quieren también las compañías de material deportivo y los medios de comunicación. Y cuando hay tanta gente que quiere lo mismo, pues es difícil que no acabe pasando. Hasta es posible que sea también lo que quiere el FBI.

Louisville assistant men's basketball coach David Padgett was named acting head coach of the program on Friday, just two days after Rick Pitino was placed on unpaid administrative leave after being linked to a federal corruption investigation that has rocked college basketball.

Interim president Greg Postel announced the hire during a late-afternoon news conference on campus.

Padgett, a former player who returned to the program as director of basketball operations in 2014, averaged 11.2 points per game as a senior at Louisville during the 2007-08 season. The former prep All-American played overseas for two seasons before joining IUPUI's staff and commencing his coaching career.

Louisville freshman Brian Bowen, one of the players at the center of a college basketball corruption scandal, has retained an attorney to help him seek reinstatement from the NCAA.

Per the Louisville Courier-Journal, Bowen has retained the services of Miami-based attorney Jason Setchen, the same attorney who helped former Miami Hurricanes player DeQuan Jones regain his eligibility after he was tied to an NCAA case involving booster Nevin Shapiro in 2011.

Setchen "prides himself on his vast experience in having handled a compendium of complex and unique legal and compliance related issues in the high school, college and NCAA context," according to his website.

Louisville coach Rick Pitino, who was removed from his post last week, is tied to an alleged scheme to deliver $100,000 to Bowen's family through cash supplied by Adidas executive Jim Gatto just days before the five-star recruit committed to Louisville, per FBI documents related to the scandal.

Last week, Bowen was suspended from all team activities.

On Friday, teammate Anas Mahmoud said the Cardinals -- now coached by former assistant David Padgett -- still considered Bowen, who is still on Louisville's campus, "a friend."

"He's a good kid," Mahmoud said.

Louisville already had top-10 talent prior to Bowen's commitment, but his arrival elevated the expectations for Pitino's program.
