COLLEGE FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE NATION : NCAA Will Investigate Alabama

September 24, 1993| Associated Press

The NCAA will investigate Alabama's football program over allegations that former player Gene Jelks was paid to play for the school.

David Berst, the NCAA's assistant executive director for enforcement, wrote university President Roger Sayers of the inquiry. Sayers received the letter Thursday and said the school will cooperate.

Berst said his staff has been reviewing information about "possible violations" alleged in a series of newspaper articles in November, 1992. Jelks, a running back and defensive back during the late 1980s, charged that he was paid to play for the Crimson Tide.
