The Texas Longhorns men’s basketball team is holding guard Eric Davis Jr. out indefinitely until further notice. His name has surfaced in the FBI’s investigation into college basketball.
Davis Jr., a junior, was named in documents into corruption in college basketball. He was one of three players, according to documents obtained by Yahoo Sports, with ties to the Texas program.
Prince Ibeh and Isaiah Taylor are the other two players. These two players are no longer with the program.
Davis Jr. reportedly received $1,500 in a loan from ASM Sports associate Christian Dawkins. ASM Sports used to be run by Andy Miller.
“Winning with integrity is paramount to Texas Athletics, and we take these allegations very seriously,” Texas athletic director Chris Del Conte said in a statement. “We expect all of our programs to comply with NCAA rules, and every year we have all of our student-athletes sign forms attesting they will follow those rules. Beyond that, we put a great deal of effort and resources into educating our coaches and student-athletes on NCAA rules and regulations.
“Our compliance department is constantly monitoring and communicating with our coaches and student-athletes, as we are in this case. We will continue to work through this recent development and provide further updates when we have the necessary information to do so.”
In 28 games this season, Davis Jr., a Michigan native, is averaging 8.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 0.6 assists per game.
