Former UNC Player Admits To Receiving Payments From Agent

Browns_Greg_Little_2012Former North Carolina wide receiver Greg Little admitted to investigators he received payments from a sports agent in 2010. The NCAA has closed the book on an investigation in to North Carolina but authorities continue to dig deeper to determine if laws related to sports agents were broken. Little was ruled ineligible in October 2010 as a result of the NCAA investigation that resulted in a postseason ban and other sanctions for the Tar Heels.

The Associated Press reports Little confessed to receiving monthly payments from Terry Watson, from Watson Sports Agency, and investigators believe Watson provided over $20,000 in extra benefits to Little and another former Tar Heel, Marvin Austin. Little spoke to investigators in January to clear his conscious it seems, telling the investigators he was “ready for this chapter of his life to be over and to get on with his life on a clean slate.”
