The probe which is now looking into Miami athletics is ever growing and the university is looking into 15 players who may have probably accepted improper benefits from a known ponzi schemer. The president of Miami Donna Shalala has yet to reveal any names of these players who are under investigation as she has released a video statement on Monday. The convicted and known ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro had told Yahoo Sports regarding an article published last week that 12 current football players and also one men’s basketball player had received money, items and other gifts from the guy.

Shalala said “We cannot let the actions of some define the many,”
The players were named by the convicted ponzi schemer himself in an interview with Yahoo Sports which include Jacory Harris, Vaughn Telemaque, Ray Ray Armstrong, Travis Benjamin, Aldarius Johnson, Marcus Forston, Olivier Vernon, Marcus Robinson, Adewale Ojomo, Dyron Dye, JoJo Nicholas and Sean Spence. He also alleged to the media that he had paid around $10,000 to ensure that the player DeQuad Jones had signed up with the Hurricanes. Scores
Many if not all of these players that this guy has named would probably be big contributors if they got to the field. Speaking of the ongoing investigation the officials of the school have said that they are not going to say that Monday is going to be the day that these players have been cleared or if they are more names linked to the investigation.
Shalala said “The Miami athletic compliance staff, in a joint effort with the NCAA, is now beginning the process of reviewing the eligibility of 15 current student-athletes,” “With the season fast approaching I know our players, coaches and fans are eager to know the results. The process, however, must be deliberate and thorough to ensure its integrity.”
The University is looking to decide the status of many players of its football team by the end of the week. The coach for the team Al Golden is planning to release a rather in depth chart in the next few days for the 5th of September’s opener in Maryland a process that would make it difficult for players like Spence, Harris, Armstrong, Benjamin, and Forston Telemaque to play on the team.
