Reggie Bush to testify at deposition regarding alleged NCAA violations?
The NY Times reports:
New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush has faced continual accusations since April 2006 that he and his family took as much as $300,000 in cash and goods while he attended the University of Southern California.
Reggie Bush left college early and was drafted by the Saints. He and his family have refused to cooperate in the investigation.
If he is found to have broken rules, the former Southern California star Reggie Bush could lose the Heisman Trophy he won in 2005.
Since then, Bush and his family have refused to cooperate with investigators for the N.C.A.A. and the Pacific-10 Conference, who are looking into whether he or university officials violated rules governing student-athletes. Bush has said little beyond denying any wrongdoing.
This month, however, Bush may be forced to break his silence. A lawyer for his chief accuser, Lloyd Lake, said he issued a subpoena to compel Bush to give a deposition Feb. 25 in a lawsuit filed in San Diego last October. Lake contends that the Bush family accepted cash, a car, rent-free housing and other goods from him, and he is seeking repayment.
