Mark Schlabath reports a former North Carolina defensive back named Chris Hawkins is the agent-like substance to whom A.J. Green sold his Independence Bowl jersey.
According to Schlabath, Hawkins contacted Green via Facebook, pitching himself as a memorabilia collector — and not as an agent.
Hawkins is also under investigation by the NCAA as to whether he arranged for meetings between agents and Tar Heel players.
More to come.
