Former Mississippi State football players Chad Bumphis and Fletcher Cox were both named in a Yahoo! Sports story by Rand Getlin and Charles Robinson.
According to the story, former Alabama defensive end Luther Davis purchased airfare tickets totaling $1,259.50 from Birmingham, Ala., to Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., for Bumphis, Cox, Johnthan Banks and Josh Boyd on Dec. 23, 2011. Only Bumphis and Cox took the flight from Jan. 3-6, 2012. The story alleges that Davis was working as “an intermediary between several high-profile college football stars and multiple NFL agents and financial advisers”.
Also mentioned in the story was a “printed recruiting itinerary” among Davis’ records. Davis, along with three others tied to NFL talent representation, took a private flight that stopped in Starkville on July 3, 2012. The itinerary included notes that read “Meeting at Little Dooey BBQ,” and listed a courtesy car for Banks, Boyd and Bumphis.
Davis confirmed in the story that Boyd and Bumphis both attended the meeting at Little Dooey that day.
