Sorry, not a big fan of acronyms either.
Shazam! Young now has an attorney....surprise-surprise-surprise, says no one.
Young's attorney also explained that he is working to quickly restore the player's eligibility.
Chase took a small loan from a close family friend last year to cover basic life expenses. Loan was repaid months ago and we’re working to restore his eligibility. Unfair and outdated @NCAA rules punish athletes for making ends meet while enriching everyone else. CY2 on Twitter

Good memory, and timely. The enforcement director who led my group through that mock exercise, @TimNevius, is now an anti-NCAA crusader and is representing Chase Young in this loan mess.
Did he hire Matt Morgan
I just hope they catch the weasel. Student athletes shouldn't be targeted like this.
How many have loaned money to an 18 year old kid. It just doesn't happen.
Ha ha ha.
A "family friend" he just happened to meet right before he started at Ohio State.
So, how did this surface, now?? He volunteered it, now? Someone squealed on him? Someone leveraging him? How did he get the $$$ to repay the “loan”, now? He a broke college student, with no income source, yet..
It does if that 18 year old is about to be a first round draft pick.
depending on how much money was involved, he isnt a poor inner city kid, he comes from a middle class home with good people around him. It could have legitimately been paid back by them, probably with a scolding telling him not to blow his future over dumb short term gifts and gains.
What does cfc stand for?
a family friend he met the summer before enrolling at OSU...
It's a Wonderful Life: UF style
Let me give everybody a factual event.
Many many years ago, decades ago, a Div 2 basketball program in my area had a decent program going, not great, just decent. They recruited a juco basketball guard, nothing special. The local car dealer buddy of mine (played golf w/ him very often, and he told me this) who had the Audi dealership "sold" a slightly used Audi Fox (<10,000 miles) to the juco player in return for him signing w/ that D2 college.
The so called "sale" was a private transaction. There was no money changing hands. The Audi Fox would simply be returned whenever he finished college 2 years later. Service was included, but not gas for the usage. The kid played ok. Graduated. Car returned. End of story.
That was small college ding dong sports.
Now compare that to the Mega "need" for guys like Derrick Henry, Chase Young, etc.
Got me on that one. Charles F. Culver.
Uh oh. Now you’re out there.
I get it, but vehicles are titled and insured; in most states, it would be a simple matter to discover who owns and insured the vehicle, if one wanted to try. Find the owner, find the bagman, unless said owner was mom and dad. Which I suspect is what mostly happens. Dealer “loans” or gives car to mom and dad. Question mom and dad and they say nada, case closed.
Yup, only a matter of time that the old “poor little college athlete” card would be played. Give me a break.
Yeah, but has essentially quitting on your team even had much a detrimental effect on NFL Draft stock? I don’t think it has. Ed Oliver pretty much quit the Houston program and he was still the 9th overall pick.
Now, that's funny cfc.
I'm trying to wrap my head around this. What did your buddy get out of the deal? Why would he do this? Did he have ties to the school?
I understand this happens (a lot), but as a business owner I don't see why someone would do this. There has to be an angle right? Or is it just supporting your school?
