Another Banner Coming Down?

According to Yahoo Sports. Kansas has reported that they have been subpoenaed by the FBI.

The FBI is interested in Silvio De Sousa, who was a part of their 2017-2018 Final Four team. I would assume that banner is in jeopardy.

It’s worth noting that Kansas is an Adidas school.Portion of the report is here:

One of the subpoenas asked for “communications, regarding or relating to the recruitment, eligibility and/or amateur status of prospective student-athlete Silvio De Sousa.”

De Sousa enrolled at Kansas for the second semester of the 2017-18 season and was cleared for play for the Jayhawks in December. In September of 2017, according to federal documents, adidas officials spoke about making “another $20,000 payment” to De Sousa’s guardian to help him get “out from under” a deal with a rival apparel company. (The guardian, Fenny Falmagne, has denied taking payments to The Kansas City Star.) De Sousa had played for an Under Armour-sponsored high school and was regarded by recruiting analysts as a near-lock to attend Maryland, an Under Armour-sponsored college.
