Baron Flenory has been accused of shady dealings with Oregon Ducks football, allegedly accepting money for turning players towards the school. He works for an outfit called New Level Athletics, with his profile page listing him a former Scout.com talent evaluator. He now runs 7-on-7 football camps.
None of this is news to hardcore college football blog readers and message boarders, who’ve likely seen Flenory’s name at more than one site over the last few months. UW Dawg Pound, our Washington Huskies community, called out Flenory in 2010 for his tight association with Oregon coach Chip Kelly and USC coach Pete Carroll. Recruitocosm also called him a street agent in 2010, a quintessential one in fact. That’s hardly the extent of his reputation.
Again, being called a street agent by college football fans does not mean any violations have occurred. If getting a bunch of message board posters stirred up is all it takes to be guilty of something, we’re all headed for probation.
