With all due respect, inferring that Efton Reid and.his parents violated NCAA rules and committed a felony by taking bribes from LSU without any proof..just inuendo from a Pitt article is worse.With all respect DL, Wade hasn't been at LSU long enough to have a track record of getting elite bigs to the NBA. And most elite bigs are going to the NBA as long as no one messes them up.
Efton is a local who has probably played in front of alot the VCU fanbase here, the coaching staff offered him a scholarship.
By all accounts, the family has an impeccable reputation and deserves the benefit of the doubt.
Lets not forget, Capel own blemished past before writing off Efton's involvement with Wade
In 2011, Oklahoma fired Capel because one of his assistants violated 2 NCAA rules related to Tiny Gallon accepting a $ 3,000 personal loan during his recruitment.
JUL 28, 2011 - NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma has asked the NCAA to place its men's basketball program on two more years of probation and vacate all wins from the 2009-10 season for two major rules...
But former OU center Keith “Tiny” Gallon said in interviews he accepted a $3,000 loan from a Florida financial adviser to pay for his high school transcripts to be released so he could enroll at OU.
According to the report, Taliaferro was guilty of two major infractions — failing to notify school officials of an improper benefit and lying to NCAA investigators in his first interview.
Taliaferro denied any involvement in or knowledge of a benefit during his first interview on Jan. 13, 2011.".
