Oregon Football Reportedly Paid Recruit Associates Will Lyles, Baron Flenory

The Oregon Ducks football program paid more than $28,000 to Will Lyles and Baron Flenory, men who've had personal associations with recent Ducks signees, according to Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson. Among the players listed by Robinson as possibly involved are star Cliff Harris, five-star 2011 signee DeAnthony Thomas, Dior Mathis, Tacoi Sumler, and Anthony Wallace.

According to the report, Lyles received $25,000 from Oregon, while Flenory was given $3,745. Both run athletics institutions that involve coming into contact with young football players. Flenory's profile page at the New Level Athletics website lists his extensive background, The NCAA is not investigating Oregon at this point.

Rumors had been building for the past week or so of trouble drawing near for Oregon, with the NCAA speaking with Thomas, according to what appeared to be Thomas' Twitter account -- though Thomas first asserting investigators wanted to know about the USC Trojans, not Oregon, then pulling a Will Hill and claiming that's not his Twitter handle.
