(Louisville, KY) - Some new information involving the University of Louisville basketball program has been uncovered during the James Gatto college basketball corruption trial Thursday.
The father of former commit Brian Bowen says sports agent Christian Dawkins facilitated a $100,000 offer from Adidas for his son to commit to Louisville.
Bowen Sr. said Dawkins told him an original offer of $60,000 to $80,000 from Adidas to attend Louisville was increased to $100,000 because that is how much Billy Preston got to go to Kansas— Dan Wetzel (@DanWetzel) October 4, 2018
Bowen's father said he never spoke directly to former head coach Rick Pitino about the offer.
However, he said he was given $1300 by former assistant Kenny Johnson and that then assistant Jordan Fair gave $900 to another recruit.
