Southern Methodist University has complied with an Internal Revenue Service request and provided the addresses of some former players implicated in its burgeoning football payments scandal, a school official said.

The IRS asked about individuals who reportedly received payments while playing for the Southwest Conference school, associate registrar Chuck Kettlewell said.

Kettlewell said the IRS gave SMU officials a list of former students and asked how they could be reached.

The Dallas Morning News identified the players as eight "highly sought" recruits who no longer play for the school: Marquis Pleasant, Sean Stopperich, Rod Jones, Reggie Dupard, Ronald Morris, Terence Mann, Jerry Ball and Donald Allen.
