The University of South Carolina has received a notice of allegations from the NCAA after an investigation into its men's basketball program, school sports director Ray Tanner confirmed in a statement Thursday. The NCAA allegedly accuses the school of recruiting violations that were first exposed in 2017 after an FBI investigation into kickbacks and corruption in college basketball.

"The University of South Carolina has received a notice of allegations from the NCAA regarding a former assistant coach of men's basketball," said Tanner. "As expected, this does not imply any problems with institutional, current or student-athlete eligibility. We will continue to defend our program and our institution in this process with the NCAA. "

The allegation relates to the association of former assistant coach Lamont Evans with Christian Dawkins, Sports Illustrated reported Thursday. Dawkins is the agent who was convicted in May on corruption charges resulting from the FBI investigation in college basketball corruption.

Evans was assistant to the Gamecocks under head coach Frank Martin from 2013 to the 2016-17 season when the Gamecocks reached the Final Four. He then spent six months with Oklahoma state personnel before being fired in September 2017 after being charged following the FBI investigation.

The alleged violation in South Carolina is considered a Level I violation by the NCAA, and it stems from an allegation that Evans accepted $ 5,865 in bribes from Dawkins to facilitate a relationship between Dawkins and the former Gamecocks player PJ Dozier, according to Sports Illustrated.

Like Dawkins, Evans was also convicted of the bribe scandal, which rocked the sport in 2017. The state of Oklahoma received a notice of allegations from the NCAA in November due to the stay of 'Evans over there. He was one of four assistant coaches arrested in 2017 as part of a federal government undercover operation on corruption and fraud in college basketball recruiting. He was sentenced in April and sentenced in June to three months in federal prison.
