Article from ESPN here:

Towards the end of the article is:

Haney also asked him about an offer from UCLA, conveyed to Bowen Sr. by Anderson.

"I don't recall that," Bowen Sr. again responded.

Haney is Steve Haney, attorney for defendant Christian Dawkins (the 'runner' in the pay-for-play scheme). Anderson is Tim Anderson, the former head of a Chicago AAU team, now a DePaul assistant.

Something seems off to me, because Mean Streets is a Nike AAU program. Why would a Chicago-based, Nike AAU coach be making offers on behalf of UCLA, when Nike is the only apparel company unaffiliated with UCLA? I'm wondering if ESPN just got some of the details of the questioning wrong.

However, this is notable because I think it's the first instance in which UCLA has been publicly named in the trial.
