Ashton Hagans’ father says he’s never met Christian Dawkins


Ashton Hagans was one of two Kentucky players Christian Dawkins said he was targeting in a business plan published by ESPN last night, but this morning, Hagans’ father said he’s never heard of the would-be agent convicted of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in the college hoops trial.

“We don’t know this guy,” Hagans told Jerry Tipton. “We never met this fool a day in our life.”

In the email, Dawkins told his partners he was planning on offering Hagans’ family $2,000 per month from October 2017 to October 2018, then $3,000 monthly through April 2020. Hagans’ father told Tipton he owns his own business, so the idea that the family would ask for a handout from someone like Dawkins is preposterous.

“I own my own business,” Hagans said. “Ashton doesn’t need nothing from no one.”

As Hagans Sr. said, there is no proof that his son or Jarred Vanderbilt, the other Kentucky player mentioned in the email, ever met or communicated with Dawkins. Vanderbilt was already enrolled at Kentucky when Dawkins emailed his partners the plan offering his family travel expenses for his freshman season and a signing bonus when he turned pro. No response yet from his camp.

    Why would Vanderbilt’s family want to travel to watch him ride the pine? Dawkins needed to do some homework…

      They only benefit Vanderbilt got was he put on uk warmups! The guy can rebound pass and run the floor but always injured it’s a shame he was my favorite player last yr. wanted him to work out by March so bad. It sucked he couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn though.

      I would love to have a healthy Vanderbilt this season.

    When I saw Jarred Vanderbilt’s name in this report last night, the first thing that came to my mind was “That’s why he sat on the bench most of the season”. Cal might have gotten wind from somebody that this Dawkins sleazebag had made contact with somebody around his family, and Cal wasn’t taking any chances with him. I know he had the lingering injury, but that didn’t explain why Jarred decided to jump to the NBA, even with no real interest from any teams.

      But he still played and still got a 4 year contract so your thoughts were wrong

      Well, he’s still not playing so that theory is out the window.
