Law enforcement probes NCAA issues under Agent Act

(AP) The Mississippi secretary of state's office is scheduled to meet
with Kenny Rogers, the man at the center of the Cam Newton
pay-for-play saga, on Thursday in Waukegan, Ill.

It's another sign that state-level law enforcement is becoming
more aggressive investigating alleged improper athlete-agent
relationships.

In both Mississippi and North Carolina, officials from the
secretary of state's office have become involved in recent
high-profile cases.

Though the Agent Act has been on the books for years, its
enforcement is relatively rare.

The ongoing Newton investigation has involved everyone from the
NCAA to the FBI, though the Auburn quarterback has been cleared to
play by the NCAA as the top-ranked Tigers prepare to face No. 2
Oregon for the national title on Jan. 10.
