For once, the NCAA has concluded an investigation and determined that everyone was playing by the rules.
After a probe into the nature of the relationship between five-star Texas basketball signee Mohamed Bomba, and adviser Greer Love, it was determined they were not breaking any NCAA laws.
They released their findings via a published statement:

Bamba and Love came under investigation after comments made by Bamba’s half-brother caught the attention of the NCAA. The investigation didn’t take long to wrap up, though. The video was posted to Facebook on June 28 at 1:56pm, and the entire investigation was in the books by July 11.
Bamba was accused of receiving benefits from Greer Love, including expensive vacations, in the hopes that Love would eventually be able to become his agent in the NBA.
There plot thickens, though. Ibrahim Johnson is also an aspiring player-agent, and was hoping to represent Bamba when the time came. Perhaps jealousy played a major part in the ultimately unfounded accusations. Regardless, Mohamed Bamba is now free to play at UT unencumbered.
Who knows, we might be talking about his being the first overall selection in the NBA Draft this time next year.
