UNC Football: Greg Little Paid $20K in Cash + Benefits

Investigators here in North Carolina have claimed that former University of North Carolina wide receiver Greg Little was payed more than $20k in cash in addition to other benefits by a Georgia-based sports agency. That of course is a violation of NCAA’s sports agent policy and potentially regulatory laws.

The North Carolina Secretary of State’s office announced today that a search warrant revealed that Terry Watson from Watson Sports Agency provided Little with a monthly allowance of $2,220 which he received in cash. He also received travel expenses and other payments that were not released.

The NCAA’s investigation has been closed and sanctions were given to UNC last season. Now authorities are continuing to investigate the case as Little and agency potentially broke sports agency regulatory laws.

Little had met with investigators in January claiming that he was ready to move on from this situation and start fresh. Obviously as the investigation continues, that is not the case.

After being declared ineligible by the NCAA in 2010, Little and fourteen other teammates missed at least one game that season. Marvin Austin was dismissed from the team that same year.

Keeping It Heel will continue to keep readers updated on the situation as we learn more.
