Former Westover and Auburn star Troy Reddick and three other ex-Tigers players are at the center of controversy after going on the investigative journalism show, "HBO Real Sports," and claiming they received cash and gifts during their time on The Plains. The episode is set to air tonight.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Four former Auburn players have told
HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" that they received
thousands of dollars while being recruited by or playing for the
Stanley McClover, Troy Reddick, Chaz Ramsey and Raven Gray made
the allegations in an episode of the show airing Wednesday night.
Auburn declined comment. None of the players were on last
season's national championship team and none has played for Auburn more recently than 2007.
McClover says he received money for a $7,000, 1973 Chevrolet
Impala from an unidentified Auburn booster and that he was paid
$4,000 after a four-sack game against rival Alabama.
He, Reddick and Ramsey all said they were paid up to $400 after
games. Gray says he received $3,000 from someone he called Auburn representative during his recruitment.
