A former Louisville recruit, and now Ohio State freshman has reportedly confirmed reports that escorts were provided to players.

Buckeyes freshman JaQuan Lyle spoke with an NCAA investigator this week about his recruiting visit to Louisville in June 2013 and confirmed some of the allegations involving paid escorts during his trip to the school, according to CBS Sports.

“He told the truth,” the source said.

In the book “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen,” co-written by former escort Katina Powell, she details taking four escorts, at the request of former Louisville staff member Andre McGee, to do a “show” for a “new recruit named JaQuan Lyle.”

“I took Rod-Ni, TooTall, Jazmine and Shay, who calls herself Sammi,” Powell wrote in a journal entry. “TooTall made $100, Shay made $100, and Jazzy made nothing because she did absolutely nothing.”

Lyle must have had a ball, because a couple of weeks after his visit, he committed to Louisville but later de-committed.
