Myron Piggie publicly called Roy a liar over this, said Roy knew full well what was going on when Piggie got arrested with Nike involvement in recruiting.
Of course the big reason Roy gave a public statement today is he knew Nassir Little was going to commit to UNC today, Little is the kid mentioned in the FBI documents where the FBI says there was a bidding war between shoe companies representing Miami and Arizona.
Arizona is allegedly saying that the so called bidding war was actually the under cover FBI agent, telling Adidas there was another offer and they needed to up the ante. That ARizona via their shoe company was NOT actually offering anything to Little, the agent just told Adidas they were to get them to further implicate themselves.
That one is going to be interesting, Miami is essentially making the same argument arizona is on Little. ARizona is saying we don't know anything about a bidding war we weren't involved we think that the FBI sting told Adidas that if they wanted Little at Miami, they had to top the bid Arizona's shoe company was making. Arizona is saying that bid never actually existed, FBI made it up to get Miami and Adidas to further implicate themselves.
And Miami is saying the same thing, we weren't involved, nobody authorized Adidas to do anything, we think the FBI invented that bid to get the others(Arizona and Nike) to implicate themselves.
In reality BOTH could be true, it's just incredibly unlikely that FBI agents would be dumb enough to actually document those charges if they can't document that at least 1 of those 2 companies was offering money to steer that player.
Both of them seem to be relying Little and his family insisting it didn't happen. And Little publicly decommitted from Arizona, having never actually committed to them, and his AAU coach is in jail over this.
IT COULD all be wrong, but it sure seems hard to believe the FBI is this bad
