Ken Caldwell Allegations Have NCAA Investigating As Kevin Ware De-Commits From UCF

Kevin Ware is developing a reputation as college basketball's biggest prima donna, but he just looks to be one of its unluckiest, if you really pay attention to what's going on. After leaving the Tennessee Volunteers once Michael Adams fired Bruce Pearl (despite allegedly assuring Ware that Pearl would stick around), Ware shocked much of the Southeast by committing to the relatively lowly Central Florida Knights over the Louisville Cardinals, Georgia Bulldogs and others.

Now, due to a regularly scheduled Pete Thamel blockbuster, Ware is looking for his next college basketball destination again. In the New York Times report, Thamel alleges UCF received recruiting assistance from Kenneth Caldwell, a twice-convicted criminal.

The NCAA is looking into Caldwell's reported connections with the program, though Caldwell swears he's done nothing wrong. UCF associate AD Joe Hornstein declared the department immediately began investigating the matter on its own as soon as the story broke.
