An investigation by the North Carolina Secretary of State has reportedly identified Georgia-based agent Terry Watson as a man who supplied cash to University of North Carolina players.
According to a report by WRAL, Marvin Austin, a defensive tackle for the New York Giants, identified Watson as a man who gave him money while he was a student-athlete for the Tar Heels. The report also alleges Watson supplied money to a tutor at the school. The entire report can be seen here.
“Terry Watson was a guy who gave me money," Austin told state investigators, according to WRAL.
Watson runs the Watson Sports Agency based in Marietta, Ga.
According to the report, Austin received a FedEx package from an Austin associate that included $2,000. He also allegedly paid tutor Jennifer Wiley, who was involved in a scandal at the school involving multiple football players.
Watson has also been linked to former Tar Heels players Charles Brown, Greg Little and Kendrick Burney. Robert Quinn is also believed to have received cash from Watson.
