Three former or current United Kingdom men's basketball players are named in the federal college basketball probe led by the FBI, according to an article from Yahoo Sports released on Friday morning.

According to emails from July of 2016 obtained by Yahoo from Christian Dawkins, an associate at sports agency ASM, Dawkins reached out to Martin about encouraging OG Anunoby and Thomas Bryant to sign with the agency when they left IU for the National Basketball Association.

An expense report from Dawkins lists payments and flight expenses for former Cardinal recruit Brian Bowen. The documents include expense reports and balance sheets that list cash advances, as well as entertainment and travel expenses for high school and college prospects and their families.

Among the schools included are Duke, North Carolina, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan State, USC, Alabama with a link to providing impermissible benefits and preferential treatment for players and families of players at those schools. Yahoo looked at detailed expense reports, which are now in the hands of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "We're not going to turn a blind eye and continue to let it negatively affect the state of college basketball". Also mentioned, former Virginia star Malcolm Brogdon, who was a surprise NBA Rookie of the Year last season with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Yahoo report indicates that NCAA officials, thus far, have declined to comment on the findings, which are likely to have far-reaching ramifications.

The NCAA released a statement from NCAA president Mark Emmert.

In any event, Thursday's report will re-open the debate over whether college athletes should be paid up front, while the schools and players will await their fate from the NCAA. Simply put, people who engage in this kind of behavior have no place in college sports.

Documents also reveal an underground recruiting operation that could not only create NCAA rules issues for at least 20 Division 1 basketball programs and more than 25 players. With these latest allegations, it's clear this work is more important now than ever. Though we can't be sure what was discussed at these meeting, or if money exchanged hands, it's worth noting that this investigation could go even deeper than initially expected, and target some of college basketball's most hallowed institutions.

The Board and I are completely committed to making transformational changes to the game and ensuring all involved in college basketball do so with integrity.

The FBI arrested 10 people on September 26 as a part of the probe, including four NCAA basketball coaches and an Adidas manager, in a bribery investigation involving recruitment efforts.
