Kenny Rogers denies asking for money during Cam Newton’s recruitment – Campus Rivalry: College Football & Basketball News, Recruiting, Game Picks, and More – USATODAY.com
Kenny Rogers, the man alleged to have solicited money during the recruitment of Cam Newton, denied any wrongdoing during an interview with a radio station in Dallas.
Rogers was accused by former Mississippi State teammate John Bond for allegedly asking for money to steer Newton to the Bulldogs during his recruitment last year.
“Heck no,” Rogers said Friday night on 103.3 ESPN. “I’ve never done that. A school has never paid me for a kid, an alumni has never paid me for a kid. Period. Point blank.”
Rogers also said he has not spoken to Bond in “over 20 years.” But he did admit to a relationship with Newton’s father, Cecil, during the recruiting process as Cam Newton was looking for a school after playing at Blinn College.
So now the story turns in a different direction.
Did Kenny Rogers talk with John Bond?
Did John Bond make the whole thing up?
Is there a deeper conspiracy here?
Why do I feel that ESPN has unclean hands here…
