    Mohamed Bamba's brother alleges NCAA violations.

    Brother of prized Texas recruit Mohamed Bamba alleges NCAA violations involving financial advisor

    Ibrahim Johnson, a 6-foot-7 forward whose basketball career ended at Division II Montevallo, posted the 22-minute video on Wednesday afternoon. Shirtless and sitting poolside, Johnson alleged that Bamba accepted $200 a week in cash, vacations and gifts, including a California king size bed, from Greer Love, who is a vice president at Huron Capital. Love has degrees from Indiana and Michigan and previously worked at Watch Hill Partners, an Investment Bank in New York, according to his Huron Capital bio.

    Hes not going to play this year in the NCAA because I already reported him to the NCAA and Im already going to meet with the NCAA, said Johnson. Hes not going to play this year. Im not going to lie to you. I exposed that kid.

    The impetus for Johnsons decision to turn Bamba in was a rift between the family that he alleges was caused by Love. Johnson was planning on following Bamba to whatever school he chose, enrolling in graduate school there and taking classes to become an NBA agent to represent Bamba. Bamba, according to Johnson, cut him out of the process. This is his revenge.

    Sounds like his brother is pretty upset. For his sake I hope it's not true.

    Typically this stuff doesn't surprise me, but for some reason I'm skeptical about this one....

    Buddy text me and said that Cal dodged a bullet and wasn't sure what he was referring to at first. This was it.

    To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible

    I'm thinking this is a jealous brother who was probably thinking little brother was "His" ticket. I'd be willing to bet they had a recent falling out which is what caused this.

    I have no idea about this story but sometimes the tips come from shady characters. I believe the Pete Rose situation started when he didn't pay his bookie for bets he owed and the bookie ran his mouth.

    A player at another school could potentially be ineligible, so Cal wants to leave for a NBA team? I'm not connecting your dots.

    Think Cal could have perhaps done something illegal with Bamba?
