It’s been a while since the last major bombshell from the FBI investigation into college basketball corruption.

Well, another big one just came as the Kansas Jayhawks have admitted to being subpoenaed by the FBI, according to Yahoo Sports.

They’ve already been linked to the investigation through former Jayhawks star Josh Jackson, whose mom received large loans during his high school career. Jackson led Kansas to an Elite Eight finish in the 2016-17 college hoops season.

Maryland also recently received a subpoena from the FBI, which reportedly involves star freshman Silvio De Sousa, who played a big role in helping Kansas make the Final Four this past season. Maryland was a major player in the recruitment of De Sousa before he ultimately picked Kansas and enrolled midway through this past season.

Suspect dead, three officers wounded in Kansas City shootouts

  Suspect dead, three officers wounded in Kansas City shootouts Police shot and killed a man on Sunday after a series of shootouts on the streets of Kansas City in which three officers were wounded and hospitalized in stable condition, officials said. Undercover and tactical officers were following a person of interest in the murder of a university student when suddenly and unexpectedly he fired on them with a rifle, according to police in Kansas City, Missouri.Two of the officers were struck at that time, police said."We've been looking for him all week. This was the first time we laid eyes on him," Police Chief Rick Smith told reporters near the scene.

Maryland has received several subpoenas connected to the FBI ’s investigation into corruption in college basketball, Yahoo Sports Yahoo reports the following regarding De Sousa and his mentioned guardian: MORE: Kansas , NC State named in updated FBI case on corruption in college basketball.

Maryland has received several subpoenas connected to the FBI ’s investigation into corruption in college basketball, Yahoo Sports and other outlets The guardian said the player favored Kansas and needed “another ,000 payment” to “help get the student-athlete ‘out from under’ the deal.”

Here is an excerpt of the report:

One of the subpoenas asked for “communications, regarding or relating to the recruitment, eligibility and/or amateur status of prospective student-athlete Silvio De Sousa.”

De Sousa enrolled at Kansas for the second semester of the 2017-18 season and was cleared for play for the Jayhawks in December. In September of 2017, according to federal documents, adidas officials spoke about making “another $20,000 payment” to De Sousa’s guardian to help him get “out from under” a deal with a rival apparel company. (The guardian, Fenny Falmagne, has denied taking payments to The Kansas City Star.) De Sousa had played for an Under Armour-sponsored high school and was regarded by recruiting analysts as a near-lock to attend Maryland, an Under Armour-sponsored college.

Adidas has been a major focus in this scandal, so it’s not a big surprise that ‘the’ Adidas school is linked to this.

It will be interesting to see what the FBI finds and how/if the NCAA does anything with it.
