Matt Norlander, a college basketball writer for CBSSports.com, is in New York for the second college basketball corruption trial and his tweets of the testimonies are electric.
My favorite so far is one about former Texas A&M star Robert Williams. You remember him, right? Big guy who came back for a second season when he was already projected as a first-round pick. We now know about some extracurricular activity that may have impacted his decision to play a sophomore season with the Aggies: he was already getting paid (allegedly, of course).
From Norlander’s juicy thread:
Here’s an all-timer: In 2017, then-Texas A&M asst Amir Abdur-Rahim met w/ Dawkins, Blazer + undercover agent to discuss paying then-A&M player Robert Williams. A pair of shoes were then allegedly purchased @ Cosmo in Vegas, stuffed with $11,000 and FedEx’ed to Williams. (@MattNorlander)
Racks stuffed in shoes and shipped via FedEx? Classic!
