(YAHOO) -

Yahoo Sports reports former University of Kansas and Wichita State University players are implicated in potential NCAA violations involving high-profile players.

The report includes former Shocker Fred VanVleet and former Jayhawk Elijah Johnson. 

Yahoo obtained documents and bank statements of prominent former NBA agent Andy Miller, his former associate Christian Dawkins and his agency, ASM Sports. It shows expense reports and balance sheets listing cash advances, and entertainment and travel expenses for high school and college prospects and their families.

Documents also reveal an underground recruiting operation that could not only create NCAA rules issues for at least 20 Division 1 basketball programs and more than 25 players. 

The expenses range from basic meals to tens of thousands of dollars. 

Yahoo Sports reports an ASM balance sheet shows accounts through December 31, 2015, with the subheading, “Loan to Players.” At that time VanVleet was playing for Wichita State and reportedly received $1,070. Johnson reportedly received $15,020. The mother of former KU player Josh Jackson reportedly received $2,700 before Josh committed to KU.

Wichita State Athletic Director Darron Boatright released the following statement:  

“We are dedicated to conducting all aspects of Wichita State’s intercollegiate athletic programs with integrity and in full compliance with NCAA and American Athletic Conference rules. We have no knowledge of the transactions described in the Yahoo report published this morning. We will fully cooperate with any formal inquiries from NCAA or legal authorities regarding this matter.”
