LAWRENCE, Kan. (WIBW) — Federal documents show two former KU basketball players, and a former Wichita State player may be involved in the federal criminal investigation into college basketball.

Yahoo! Sports says former KU standouts Elijah Johnson and Josh Jackson were listed in the report.

According to documents, Josh Jackson's mother, Apple Jones, received a $2,700 payment.

Former Wichita State player Fred VanVleet reportedly received $1,000 from sports agency Christian Dawkins.

Several other players are implicated, some receiving much more than $1,000.

Former Utah star Kyle Kuzma, who now plays for the Lakers, is accused in the report of receiving nearly $10,000 while in college.

It's against NCAA rules for players to be paid.

Evidence obtained by the FBI show detailed records of payments and scheduled payments to the families of players.

News of the college basketball scandal broke on Sept. 26 when several coaches, agents, and high-profile players were arrested on federal conspiracy charges.
