Sep 9, 2013; San Diego, CA, USA; Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt (99) works against San Diego Chargers offensive tackle D.J. Fluker (76) during the first half at Qualcomm Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsReports are coming out from Yahoo about San Diego Chargers RT D.J. Fluker receiving extra benefits while in college:
Yahoo Sports authenticated multiple transactions tying Fluker to Davis and others, including cash transfers, hotel stays, furniture, airline flights and other expenses. The records also included a pair of invoices – one submitted to Davis by the mother of an Alabama teammate for monies that had been spent on Fluker’s mother, Annice; another sent from Davis to Fluker’s onetime financial adviser Hodge Brahmbhatt.
Receiving that type of extra love is not allowed by the NCAA.
What can you do about it now though? You can’t suspend Fluker from Alabama games. You can’t suspend him for NFL games. Alabama would have to take the penalty for this one. The school would have to get reprimanded for letting it happen.
How do you stop it? No dang clue.
