death penalty they received in 1987, but the school is looking into a backstage visit made to rapper Lil Wayne by Deion Sanders Jr. and some of his teammates.
Last week, photos appeared on social media websites of SMU wide receiver Deion Sanders Jr. and some of his teammates hanging out backstage with rapper Lil’ Wayne. The father of the SMU receiver told Adam Lawson of the Valley Morning Star that “his son was being investigated because ‘they’re trying to say (he) got into the concert because (he’s) an SMU player.’” The elder Sanders went on to explain that Lil’ Wayne is one of his best friends.
While the former Florida State star claimed that the NCAA is investigating his son, his son’s school claims otherwise.
“It’s not the NCAA. It’s our compliance office. Just doing their due diligence,” SMU official Brad Sutton said via text message when asked about who was probing what. “We don’t expect to find anything amiss, but it’s our responsibility to check stuff like this out.”
This is almost the same thing as Jay-Z making an appearance in the Kentucky basketball team locker room.
I'd be nervous if I were SMU since the NCAA likes to hammer the smaller schools. And since they received the death penalty before the mighty NCAA probably would hit them with three years probation for this one.
The whole thing is rather harmless as the younger Sanders was probably treating his teammates to a good time and the school is making a bigger deal out of it than it really is.
