The FBI's investigation of college basketball corruption, explained

Attorney Southern District of New York,Joon Kim, showed two diagrams of the alleged schemes during a press conference on Tuesday:

Dawkins, Sood, and “UC-1” allegedly paid the father of Bowen an initial $25,000 in an attempt to secure his commitment to the university.

There was then a meeting three days later on July 27, where Dawkins, Augustine, UC-1, CW-1, and a Louisville coach discussed payments from Adidas to another high school basketball player.

Bowen’s father and Jonathan Augustine continue to receive payments to ensure that they would remain with the agency Dawkins aimed to start in the future.

The defendants also allegedly discussed a $150,000 payment to Player-12 to ensure he would choose what appears to be the University of Miami over a “rival university.” On a phone call, Code informed Gatto they had “another Louisville situation,” apparently describing the involvement between Bowen and that school.
