Yahoo! Sports published documents on Friday showing at least 20 Division I programs implicated in the FBI probe. The documents allege that numerous college basketball players, former and current, received impermissible benefits, with numerous players/schools listed on expense reports of two NBA agents.
Davis was among those linked to expense reports from ASM Sports, the sports agency at the heart of the FBI probe. Former Texas center Prince Ibeh was also listed on the balance sheets, according to the report.
Davis is averaging 8.8 points and 2.4 rebounds per game for the Longhorns this season. Texas has upcoming games vs. Oklahoma State, No. 8 Kansas, and No. 21 West Virginia left on the regular-season schedule. The Big 12 Championship Tournament begins on March 7.
