Oregon Football Reveals Will Lyles Payments To NCAA In Recruiting Investigation

Oregon Football has had dealings with a street agent, which is generally regarded as a bad thing. However, the Oregon Ducks claim that, to their knowledge, Will Lyles ran a legitimate business and they paid him for legitimate business services. In an attempt to comply with NCAA rules and clear themselves on charges of any wrongdoing, UO is in the process of releasing documents related to the NCAA inquiry.

The most significant of these payments is probably a $25,000 payment to Complete Scouting Services, Lyles' company, for a national recruiting package. The reason this is important is because the payment for services was made shortly after Oregon signed two recruits that Lyles advised.

At present, it's impossible to say that Oregon did or did not do anything wrong, but the newly released documents are at the very least, interesting. The NCAA's investigation is ongoing, and the university will probably release some more documents in the coming weeks in an attempt to prove they did nothing wrong.
