Recently USA TODAYs Eric Prisbell reported that Trudy Faulcon, the mother of North Carolina star basketball player, P.J. Hairston's close friend Miykael Faulcon, says she sat for a two-hour interview with two NCAA officials at an Atlanta hotel on Sept. 21, during which she said she witnessed Hairston driving a Chevy Camaro SS several times last spring.
It appears that her motivation for allowing this interview was to inform people that her son got to know Hayden “Fats” Thomas through Hairston and Thomas did not give her son any cars, drugs or money.
As you can imagine Hairston’s known ties to Thomas, a convicted felon has been a hot topic for UNC and rival fans for months.
The NCAA has been investigating possible extra benefits tied to Hairston and this concerns me because Trudy Faulcon stated to USA TODAY that her son and Hairston often spent time hanging out at Thomas' Durham home with other players from area schools.
Besides some current and former UNC Tar Heel basketball players, also a former Duke football player that have known ties with Thomas; could there be more student-athletes that names may become known during this whole investigation?
