Agent oversight continues to vex college sports

Stoops said the problem with agents is worse than at any time he can remember in his 12 years as a head coach. There are more agents and financial advisers seeking out college athletes, and trying to reach them at an earlier age, than ever before, he believes.
But with NCAA rules set up to penalize the schools and athletes — rather than the agents — that cuts the incentive for colleges to launch investigations.
“The only way to really start having a chance to clean it up would be for the NCAA to allow players to come forth and say, ‘These guys and these guys and these guys are doing this, this and this,'” Stoops said.
