Report: Ramsey to meet with NCAA

BY foxsports • April 14, 2011

Former Auburn offensive lineman Chaz Ramsey was preparing Thursday for a private meeting with the NCAA next week over his claims that he was paid money to play for the Tigers, The Birmingham News reported.

Ramsey, who represented Auburn from 2007 to 2008, was one of four former players to make allegations on HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," along with Stanley McClover, Troy Reddick and Raven Gray.

Ramsey said that he received between $200 and $300 after games, while selling complimentary tickets he was given by the school.

After previously refusing to talk to the NCAA, Ramsey changed his stance after learning that Auburn's attorneys will not be present at the private meeting.

"I wouldn't like Auburn to be there," he said. "The NCAA wanted to talk to me, so the NCAA is going to talk to me."

McClover is the only one of the four players who made allegations to speak to the NCAA, but said he refused to name the alleged Auburn boosters.

Auburn coach Gene Chizik reacted angrily to HBO's coverage of the story, describing it as "pure garbage."
