After a record setting one week without any new developments in the Cam Newton case, it appears that there will be some movement next week.
According to an AP report, former Mississippi State player Kenny Rogers is scheduled to meet with officials from the Mississippi Secretary of State’s office December 9th to discuss the recruitment of Auburn quarterback Cam Newton.
It is interesting that the timing of that meeting comes after the SEC Championship game on December 4th.
Rogers, who has worked with a sports agent, has said Newton’s father, Cecil, asked two Mississippi State coaches for up to $180,000 to secure his son’s commitment to the Bulldogs. Rogers says the coaches declined the request, and MSU has said all of its employees acted properly.
Cecil Newton has denied any wrongdoing.
Rogers has also been interviewed by the NCAA, according to his attorney Doug Zeit.
Cam Newton remains eligible at Auburn. The Heisman candidate and second-ranked Tigers will play No. 18 South Carolina in the SEC championship game on Saturday.
