LaMichael James spent his draft day with none other than Mr Willie Lyles.
We all know that Lyles is a problem and has caused Oregon, along with some other schools, some problems. Lyles is still at the center of the NCAA’s investigation into Oregon’s recruiting practices, but guess what, James is no longer a Duck and he can hang with whoever he wants, even if it looks shady.
The payouts all took place within the last fiscal year and appeared in the annual college budget expenditures for the university. According to records, the monies were paid under the account for “Books, Publications and other References.” The $25,000 check was made out to “Willie J. Lyles/dba [doing business as] Complete Scouting”. The check to Flenory was made payable to his company, New Level Athletics. [Yahoo Sports]

As usual, these athletes don’t seem to care about the schools they attend, but more about themselves.
You’ve got to imagine that Chip Kelly is not too happy about this.
