Five SEC Players Named In Report To Have Received Extra Benefits

NFL_DJ_Fluker_1 [1]Five Southeastern Conference football players, including former Alabama All-American tackle D.J. Fluker, might have received impermissible benefits prior to completing their collegiate careers.

According to a Yahoo! Sports report, former Alabama defensive end Luther Davis acted as an intermediary between the players and multiple NFL agents and financial advisers. The report says Davis funneled money and benefits totaling $45,500 to Fluker, Tennessee’s starting defensive end Maurice Couch, former Volunteers quarterback Tyler Bray, and former Mississippi State players Fletcher Cox and Chad Bumphis.

The allegations would violate NCAA bylaw 12.3.1.2 which prohibits athletes from receiving extra benefits from prospective agents or marketing representatives. The violation could impact Fluker’s eligibility and potentially the Alabama wins he participated in, including the 2012 BCS National Championship Game.
