Default Mayo got cash, benefits from promoter

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A former associate of USC freshman guard O.J. Mayo claims the basketball star received thousands of dollars in cash and other gifts from an event promoter over the past four years that would violate NCAA rules, ESPN reported Sunday.

Louis Johnson told ESPN's "Outside the Lines," that Rodney Guillory, a Los Angeles-based event promoter, gave Mayo about $30,000 and other benefits while he attended high school and his sole season at USC. Mayo has decided to forgo his sophomore year and enter the NBA draft.

but yet when mayo went to usc 4 his freshman yr.. the NCAA, the PAC-10 and USC. did investigate his life from his jr/sr yr into the yr he played 4 usc.. and if they couldn't find anything on him then i would have to lean towards the fact he didn't receive anything..

the first one was only to see if he was eligible to attend USC. it wasnt regarding his financial status.

according to espn it was to see if he was eligible to play. nothing to do with money.

Saying the NCAA has "new information," president Myles Brand promised to investigate former Southern California basketball star O.J. Mayo, who allegedly received thousands of dollars in gifts from money given to an event promoter by a sports agency.

Why am I not surprised?

Why attend USC when you could have gone to powerhouse Florida?

The football program has agents hanging all around it.

If this does turn out to be true, the NCAA better put a major punishment on USC.
