According to a report from ESPN, hours of FBI wiretaps prove that Arizona head coach Sean Miller proposed a $100k payment to ensure commitment from freshman star Deandre Ayton. Miller was often in touch with Christian Dawkins, an employee of ASM Sports and one of the key figures of this FBI investigation, to finalize the signing of Ayton, one of the most coveted players coming off the high school.
The telephone calls between Miller and Dawkins were among 3,000 hours of conversations intercepted from Dawkins' phone by the FBI. Source:
