Update: Travis Perry, Greer High School's athletic director, has informed Ben Jones of Black Shoe Diaries that Jerry Sandusky was never at a practice or a game and never recruited Ah Ching, calling Ah Ching's statements to the contrary to WYFF, the NBC affiliate for Greenville, S.C., "false and untrue." As of 5:25 p.m. (EST) on Friday, WYFF's story has not been edited.
We knew former Penn St. Nittany Lions defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky still held a position within the program despite retiring more than a decade ago, maintaining an office and access to all football facilities. We know he's alleged to have used much of that access for evil, too. And we also know Joe Paterno and Tim Curley knew of the allegations and the grand jury investigation, but still allowed him on campus up until the week of his arrest.
And now we're learning Sandusky was reportedly still in contact with a Penn State recruit while under grand jury investigation for child sexual abuse.
"He came to my last spring game going into my senior season. He liked how I moved, laterally, and how gifted I am," said Ah Ching.
But days after Sandusky was charged with sexually abusing young boys, leading to the firing of football coach Joe Paterno and university President Graham Spanier, Ah Ching scratched Penn State off his list of where he'd continue his football career.
