UK Recruit Enes Kanter took cash

According to ESPN.com

Kentucky recruit Enes Kanter received more than $100,000 in cash and benefits while he played for a professional team in Turkey, the club’s general manager told The New York Times.

Nedim Karakas, the GM for Fenerbahce Ulker, said the team has handed over banking and housing records to the NCAA, which is reviewing Kanter’s amateur status.

“The NCAA asked officially what we paid,” he told the newspaper. “We took from the bank what we paid. Normally, we send all the documents that we have. They asked for more things. They asked for the rent, what we paid.”

He had said in the past that the did not take any money when he first signed his Letter of Intent with Kentucky which did surprise me a little because he was a professional player overseas in Turkey, so I am anxious to see what and how quick the NCAA powers will handle this situation.
