The long awaited FBI report investigating corruption in men's college basketball has finally come.

There are so many schools involved, it's unknown how the NCAA will handle all these cases.

The Yahoo Sports article states that Christian Dawkins, a former associate of former National Basketball Association agent Andy Miller, sought reimbursement of $2,700 loaned to Jackson's mother.

NCAA rules do not allow players or their family members to receive benefits from agents or their representative. On Friday, the Yahoo report implicated almost 25 more in some manner, including KU and fellow blue bloods Duke, Kentucky, Michigan State and North Carolina.

The benefits range from meals to tens of thousands of dollars, according to the report.

A case so widespread like this is not about players getting money, it's about a broken system in which corruption is the norm. One of those players was former KU guard Elijah Johnson, who graduated in 2013. There's a later reference to Adebayo that says he received $36,500.

Markelle Fultz, is said to have accepted $10,000 from the agency while in high school, according to TMZ.

Diamond Stone (2015-16 Maryland center) - $14,303. Former Louisville and current SC guard Brian Bowen, the subject of the FBI's initial findings, also received at least $1,500 in plane tickets and $7,000 in benefits.

Another former Washington player, Dejounte Murray, did not appear on the same report as Fultz, but his name was spotted on an expense report in March of 2016, indicating that he was due $500. Dozier was part of South Carolina's Final Four team a season ago.

In May 2016, Bridges had signed a national letter of intent with Michigan State but had yet to enroll.

Dawkins met with several players before turning pro.

Davis is alleged to have received $1,500, while Ibeh is listed as a player who had meetings with ASM.

Kentucky leading scorer Kevin Knox and former players Bam Adebayo and Nerlens Noel were among the players mentioned in a report by Yahoo Sports.

Isaiah Whitehead, at the time a freshman at Seton Hall, received $26,136 according to the documents.

The NCAA hasn't made any rulings surrounding this report but did release a statement.

"These allegations, if true, point to systematic failures that must be fixed and fixed now if we want college sports in America", NCAA President Mark Emmert said in a statement released Friday morning.

He enrolled at SC last month with Tanner and Gamecocks coach Frank Martin both saying the school had done its due diligence at vetting Bowen before he joined.
