USC Athletics Under NCAA Investigation
Posted by Eric Lemus on Sep 5, 2012 - 1:57:36 AM

LOS ANGELES—The University of Southern California is under investigation by the NCAA. Tuesday, reports surfaced that the college athletics' governing body is looking into whether Joe McKnight and Davon Jefferson received gifts from appraiser Scott Schenter.

McKnight, a running back for the Trojans from 2007-10, and Jefferson, a forward on the basketball team from 2006-08, allegedly received a car, airline ticket, and cash from Schenter.

The report surfaces just one week into the Trojans' first football season in two years with bowl eligibility. Ironically enough, the Trojans served a postseason ban and forfeiture of scholarships in both the football and basketball programs due to infractions committed by McKnight's predecessor in the Southern California backfield, Reggie Bush, and Jefferson's former teammate, O.J. Mayo.

The USC sanctions were looked upon as being rather stern in 2009, causing the resignation of Athletic Director Mike Garrett, but these allegations may lead to even harsher punishment. However, if the investigation does indeed find violations, the Trojans will not be subject to repeat violater sanctions if they occurred ahead of the Bush and Mayo incident.
