More allegations against Cam Newton surface

ESPN report says Auburn QB, father acknowledged pay-for-play

POSTED: November 10, 2010 11:25 a.m.

AUBURN, Ala. — ESPN is reporting on its website that Auburn quarterback Cam Newton and his father each had a phone conversation with a Mississippi State recruiter that acknowledged a pay-for-play arrangement for the prized recruit.

One of the recruiters said Cecil Newton told him before Cam Newton committed to Auburn that it would take "more than a scholarship" for his son to attend Mississippi State. An unidentified source told ESPN that another recruiter received a phone call from an emotional Cam Newton after he committed to the Tigers, when he said his father selected Auburn for him because "the money was too much."

The NCAA is reviewing the recruitment of Newton, a front-runner for the Heisman Trophy.
