As reported in yahoosports.com, USC men’s basketball coach Tim Floyd made a direct cash payment to a man who helped deliver O.J. Mayo to the Trojans program, according to Louis Johnson, a former member of Mayo’s inner circle.Johnson, a one-time Mayo confidant, has told both NCAA investigators and federal authorities – including the FBI, IRS and U.S. Attorney’s Office – that Floyd gave at least $1,000 in cash to Rodney Guillory, a man who allegedly lavished Mayo with improper benefits while the guard starred for the Trojans. Such an act would constitute a major NCAA violation for USC.
At least at College Park, Gary Williams, in his 20 years as head coach of the Terrapins, has never stepped into this dark side of recruiting.
