5-Star Texas Basketball Signee Mo Bamba Accused Of Receiving Illegal Benefits

Five-star Texas basketball recruit Mo Bamba could find himself in some hot water.

In an expletive-filled rant on social media, Bamba’s half-brother, Ibrahim Johnson, described some explosive allegations. According to Johnson, Bamba received illegal benefits throughout the recruiting process from a financial advisor, Greer Love.

Johnson claims Love arranged payments and luxury trips for Bamba while attempting to lure him to specific schools.

Ultimately, Bamba landed with Shaka Smart’s Longhorns over Duke and Kentucky.

It’s important to note that Johnson tried to make it clear that none of the impermissible benefits came from Texas.

“As is usual practice by the NCAA, Mo’s amateur status was previously reviewed and final certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center,” Texas said in a statement. “The NCAA has not informed us of any pending issues or eligibility concerns at this time regarding Mo. If there are further questions, we certainly will cooperate with the NCAA to the fullest.”

Johnson claims that Bamba will be ruled ineligible by the NCAA for the 2017-18 college basketball season.
