Percy Harvin Gets Connected to USC Probe

New, 1 comment

Viking fans and Florida Gator fans, rejoice. . .Reggie Bush, the current most overrated player in the NFL, may have kept one of the NFL's most versatile players from attending the University of Southern California.  In fact, his behavior towards that player might have been what triggered the entire investigation in the first place.

According to an article from Sports by Brooks, Percy Harvin's name has come up in the probe the NCAA did into the USC football program.  Turns out that back in 2005, Bush was supposed to entertain Harvin, then a USC recruit, during Harvin's trip to the USC campus.  However, Bush decided that rather than hang out with Harvin, it would be more important for him to spend time with his agent, Lloyd Lake, and his associate, Michael Michaels.

You know. . .the agents that Bush shouldn't have been having any association with in the first place, what with him being a college athlete and everything.

↵

So, basically, Harvin went out to California and hung out in his hotel room so that Bush could, as the kids today might say, "get his."

McNair made repeated attempts to contact Reggie Bush in regards to the top recruit’s official visit. But Bush, on a post-game outing with family and friends, including Lake and Michaels, left the recruit waiting in his hotel room while they ate dinner. The recruit would later verify that timeline.

↵

Among the numerous calls McNair placed to Bush and the recruit that night, three were to a 619 area code that was not Bush’s number. That number, cited from McNair’s USC phone records, belonged to Lake.

Translation: McNair found out through Harvin that Bush, who was out with Lake that night, was blowing off the top recruit in country. A recruit McNair was personally responsible for.

↵

See, folks, this is why you should be nice to people. . .when you're not, bad things tend to happen.
