Two Texas football players each received a meal paid for by an agent and possibly jeopardized their NCAA eligibility, according to documents obtained by the American-Statesman through an open records request.
Texas reported the incident to the NCAA on June 6, though it wasn’t clear when the violations occurred. Accepting a free meal from an agent violates the NCAA’s rules regarding amateurism, as the meal is considered compensation for an athlete’s talents.
The names of the players weren’t disclosed in the documents.
University spokesman Nick Voinis told the Statesman on Monday that the case was “being processed through the NCAA through regular procedures.” He declined to answer questions.
