Agent Brags About Dining with Texas Footballers, Likely NCAA Violations on Twitter

NCAA enforcement might be dead by and large, but it doesn't mean it's a good idea to flaunt NCAA violations on Twitter.

Texas, it appears, is under NCAA scrutiny due to an agent possibly buying meals for current Texas footballers

But how do we know these meals definitely occurred? Because Justin Bingham, the agent in question, tweeted about it earlier this year.

From The Austin American-Statesman:

“Just had a great dinner with @Ced_Reed88 He and his dad are great guys!” Bingman tweeted on March 22.

“Had dinner with @TexasBoy99tank and his Dad last night. They are both great guys and looking forward to the next time,” he tweeted about Jackson on March 23.

The next day, Bingman tweeted, “Had dinner with @SteveBigMoney33 last night, MLB for Texas. We all had a great time with many stories. #Longhorns”

Bingman’s next tweet read: “Just had dinner with a great young man that is going to do great this year for Texas @JHicks_3 #Longhorns #LonghornsNation”

Granted, Bingham could have paid for his own meal, but that's not usually how this works. It's also terrible form to bring attention to dinners between agents and underclassmen in the first place, for reasons mentioned above.
