LaVar Ball, rarely short on words, decided to speak out on illegal bribery within NCAA recruiting in the wake of recent FBI investigation that lead to Rick Pitino’s departure from Louisville earlier this week. LaVar claims that he has recieved a number of financial offers or other incentives for his son’s commitment over the years.
LaVar spoke on the subject while during a CBS Sports Podcast, Flagrant Two.
“They keep coming every summer to get me to say ‘yes’. They offered you money, they offered to take care of the AAU team, they’re gonna give everybody uniforms, everybody shoes. I mean, it’s just, any kind of way.”
