Aspiring agent Christian Dawkins listed players he wanted to pay in a five-page email he sent to aspiring business partners last year, and the list includes current and past Kentucky and Louisville players, according to an ESPN report. Among the “prospective players” listed in Dawkins’ plan were Louisville’s Ray Spalding and V.J. King and Kentucky’s Jarred Vanderbilt and Ashton Hagans, but ESPN reported “there is no evidence that any of the payments were actually made before (Dawkins’) arrest or that any of the players had knowledge of the pay-for-play schemes.” “All of our student-athletes undergo a thorough review process to ensure their eligibility,” a UK spokesman said in a statement released to the Courier Journal on Thursday afternoon. “With the full cooperation of our student-athletes and their families, the compliance department works closely with the NCAA eligibility center and the Southeastern Conference throughout the entire amateurism certification process.
