Report: Ex-UConn recruit to talk to NCAA

Report: Ex-UConn recruit to talk to NCAA

Published Apr. 1, 2011 1:00 a.m. ET

Nate Miles tells The New York Times he is open to talking to the NCAA about his recruitment by Connecticut, and the former prep star says Huskies coach Jim Calhoun knew he received improper benefits from a former team manager.

Calhoun and Connecticut were penalized by the NCAA in February for recruiting violations involving Miles and other infractions. But Miles refused to participate in the investigation.

The Huskies face Kentucky in the Final Four on Saturday in Houston.

Miles tells the newspaper in a story posted on its website Friday night that he ''probably'' would talk to the NCAA now to ''get some things straight.''


A spokeswoman for the NCAA said it would consider listening.

Miles was expelled from UConn in October 2008 without ever playing for the Huskies.
