Auburn, Jovon Robinson Reportedly Being Investigated By Multiple Media Outlets

Rumors have swirled for more than a week now that multiple media outlets are actively investigating a potential dirty recruiting story in Memphis about the transcript scandal involving Jovon Robinson and Auburn. Tuesday morning, Memphis Commercial Appeal columnist Geoff Calkins confirmed those rumors.

Robinson is the Memphis running back who was admitted to Auburn and then subsequently ruled ineligible after it was found that his transcripts were falsified by a guidance counselor.

The question, of course, then became one of Auburn's involvement, if any.

And with many media outlets in town, there is a worry that one outlet will run the story before it has all the facts, causing the key figures in the story to clam up before saying all they have to say to the other outlets still working the story.

Memphis has a reputation as a dirty recruiting area. Fans of Arkansas, Auburn, Alabama, Ole Miss and Tennessee all regularly accuse the others of buying players from the area. And Alabama was caught doing so in the Albert Means case.
