Cobb met with NCAA investigators recently after telling USA Today he received thousands of dollars from Blackstock, who has been advising McLemore throughout this draft process. USA Today reported that Blackstock is now a certified agent.

“The things [Cobb] said were a lie,” McLemore said at last month’s predraft workouts. “I think it was just a personal attack on Rodney. … Rodney has been great. Since I met him, we have got that bond and communicating very well. That is why I chose him to help me with this process.”
