Cam Newton: Mississippi State Booster Acknowledges Payment Plan Request
Cam Newton: Mississippi State booster, Bill Bell, acknowledged to the NCAA that he received text messages from a person claiming to represent Cecil Newton, the Auburn quarterback's father.
The text messages allegedly detailed a plan that the University would follow which paid the Newton family money in exchange for Cam's transfer to MSU to play football for the Bulldogs.
ESPN.com is reporting that Bell had voicemails from Kenny Rogers (an apparent representative for the Newton family) and turned them over to the NCAA last week.
Rogers works as a recruiter for an NFL agent and told a Dallas radio station last week that he left a message for Bell, indicating that Cecil Newton wanted to know about the status of a "deal."
According to Bell, subsequent text messages from Rogers asked for $80,000 upon signing, $50,000 a month after Newton signed with MSU, and another $50,000 a month after that.
