Yahoo Sports investigative reporter Charles Robinson, the author of the story on Nevin Shapiro and the illicit benefits he allegedly provided to UM players, said Monday that the possibility exists that former Canes such as Robert Marve and Arthur and Bryce Brown, who were included in the accusations by Shapiro, might have been released to play this year by the NCAA at Purdue and Kansas State because they cooperated with the NCAA in the secretive first five months of the investigation.
Check out NCAA Rule 126.96.36.199 Student-Athlete. At the request of the enforcement staff, the Committee on Infractions may grant limited immunity to a student-athlete or prospective student-athlete when such an individual otherwise might be declared ineligible for inter-collegiate competition based on information reported to the enforcement staff by the student-athlete or a prospective student-athlete or a third party associated with the student-athlete or prospective student-athlete. Such immunity shall not apply to the individual's involvement in violations of NCAA legislation not reported or to future involvement in violations of NCAA legislation by the individual or to any action taken by an institution. In any case, such immunity shall not be granted unless the relevant information would not otherwise be available to the enforcement staff.
Robinson discussed that possibility, the Tyrone Moss denials and other issues in an interview today on Yahoo Sports Radio.
