A published report quoted former Auburn running back Brent Fullwood as saying he testified before a federal grand jury Tuesday that agent Lloyd Bloom threatened to “bump off” his current agent, George Kickliter.
Copyright stories published in Wednesday’s editions of The Atlanta Constitution also say Ohio State wide receiver Cris Carter’s testimony before the same grand jury will lead to his suspension from the team, citing sources close to the university and the investigation of New York-based agents Bloom and Norby Walters.
The grand jury is investigating Walters’ and Bloom’s dealings with college athletes. The agents admitted giving athletes cash for signing postdated contracts to be represented by the agents, but say they have committed no crimes.
The Constitution reported that Fullwood, who admitted to the grand jury that he accepted money from Walters and Bloom before his senior season last year, said Bloom made the statement regarding Kickliter after Fullwood severed ties with Walters and Bloom.
