In the aftermath of an exclusive Yahoo! Sports report, which implicates five Southeastern Conference football stars in NCAA rule violations, the details of the case may have a broader impact on sports agent laws.

These players accused of receiving the illegal benefits are Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray, Tennessee defensive end Maurice Couch, Mississippi State defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and Mississippi State receiver Chad Bumphis.
