LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Heisman Trophy favorite Cam Newton
tells ESPN that he "did no wrong" in the recruiting process that
led to him signing with Auburn.
Speaking hours before the College Football Award Show broadcast
by ESPN, Newton told the network Thursday that he did "it the
right way" and followed his heart in signing with the Tigers
instead of Mississippi State.
He has not spoken publicly about the failed pay-for-play scheme
involving his father, Cecil, while being recruited by the Bulldogs.
Newton is at Disney World, where he was a finalist for the Davy
O'Brien and Maxwell awards. The O'Brien is presented annually to
the nation's best quarterback, and the Maxwell to the best
all-around player. His next stop will be New York, where he's the
favorite to win the Heisman on Saturday.
