DC Assault Problems?

According to the Topeka-Capital Journal, Kansas State senior Jamar Samuels was held out of yesterday's game versus Syracuse due to eligibility concerns after receiving cash from Curtis Malone, founder of DC Assault. Malone claims that he and Samuels did nothing wrong because he already had a relationship with Samuels before attending K-State, and that the money was only for food, but it sounds like the NCAA and K-State compliance office disagree. It sounds like Malone is admitting to doing this with other players he is connected to.

We all know that Gary had previously had a...rocky...relationship with Malone in the past. The real question now is if and how this latest news could impact the recruiting pipeline out of DC Assault? Will other schools distance themselves from DC Assault knowing that Curtis Malone's relationships with his players could cause eligibility concerns? Could Maryland distance themselves like others may do, or if they decide to maintain a relationship could it give them a leg up on the competition if others back off because of eligibility concerns?

Thoughts?
