Texas in wait-and-see mode regarding Kabongo
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Sophomore guard Myck Kabongo will practice with Texas until NCAA investigators who have raised questions about his relationship with a professional agent make a determination in his case.
Longhorns coach Rick Barnes said Wednesday that Kabongo has not been declared ineligible, but that's the extent of his knowledge. A school spokesman confirmed last week that Kabongo has talked to investigators and the school compliance department is communicating with the NCAA.
Yahoo Sports first reported the probe into Kabongo's relationship with Rich Paul, the agent of Miami Heat star LeBron James.
The report also said the NCAA is also investigating whether Paul was involved in a trip to Cleveland last spring that included at least one workout with professional trainer Jerry Powell.
