Dillon Baxter's Story Denied By Washington, Florida, Alabama And Oregon

On Friday, news broke that USC freshman running back/wide receiver Dillon Baxter reported illegal contact from five football programs -- Washington, Florida, Alabama, Oregon, and Fresno State. According to the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta, four of these schools have denied Baxter's claim.

In a statement released through the school's sports information department tonight, however, UW says it has contacted no USC players.

"The University of Washington denies any accusation of attempting to contact any current USC football players,'' the statement read. Oregon, Alabama and Florida have also all denied contacting Baxter.

As of this writing, it doesn't appear as though Fresno State has issued a statement yet.
