Shortly after the NCAA announced Monday it had ruled on the eligibility of Miami's Dewan Hernandez, who was a key figure in the FBI's investigation of corruption in college basketball, the Hurricanes junior forward responded with his own announcement.
After learning that he would be forced by the NCAA to sit out the rest of this season and 40 percent of 2019-20 before his eligibility would be reinstated, Hernandez decided to end his college career and declare for the NBA Draft.
And Hernandez and his lawyer Jason Setchen had a few choice words for the NCAA on their way out.
The NCAA's reasoning for one of the harshest punishments tied to the FBI's investigation was that Hernandez was guilty of "entering into an agreement with and accepting benefits from an agent."
Hernandez was found to have been associated with Christian Dawkins, who in October was one of three men found guilty of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
