According to's Aaron Suttles, after conducting its own investigation, the University of Alabama has found no illegal payments were made between Darren Woodruff and Russellville running back Brent Calloway.

University officials conducted interviews with Calloway, Woodruff, Calloway’s adopted father Harland "Peaches" Winston, officials at First Metro Bank and Russellville High principal Tim Guinn.

What they found was there is a 20-year relationship between Woodruff and Winston, but that Woodruff is not a booster of the University of Alabama.

In fact, Woodruff says the only time he has stepped on campus is when Calloway invited him to a football game in Tuscaloosa while he was being recruited by Alabama back in his junior year.

According to NCAA rules, recruits are allowed to bring guest to games with them.

Woodruff said the last few days have been rough on him, but he hopes now that all of the rumors will be put to rest.
