Jeff Goodman and Gary Parrish teamed up to break some pretty interesting news about the potential recruitment of Shabazz Muhammad. To read the article in full, go here.
The NCAA has contacted each school recruiting the nation’s top-ranked high school basketball prospect, Shabazz Muhammad, and made them aware of financial dealings that could compromise Muhammad’s amateur status, multiple sources have told CBSSports.com.
The sources told CBSSports.com that the NCAA is specifically interested in connections between Muhammad’s family and financial planner Benjamin Lincoln and financial advisor Ken Kavanagh. Lincoln is a North Carolina-based financial analyst whose brother, Geoff Lincoln, is an assistant coach for Muhammad’s high school team in Las Vegas. Kavanagh is a New York-based financial planner.
The plot surely thickens now for the teams in the lead for Shabazz’s recruitment. In fairness, this article states that the NCAA has only warned schools to be wary at this point. Kentucky was thought to be near the top of the pack along with UCLA and UNLV. Many Kentucky fans are already drawing comparisons to the Enes Kanter eligibility situation.
I trust that John Calipari will move forward in the best way possible when dealing with this situation. I won’t pretend to know what is best for Kentucky. The news is sure to pick up steam in the next few weeks. Stay tuned folks, this one could get very interesting.
@AllyTuckerKSR Follow me, everything is alright. The NCAA must not get much sleep at night…
