Yahoo! Sports has new information on the scandal that's likely to rock the college basketball world. It doesn't sound good.

Last week, Yahoo! Sports reported that the FBI's investigation into corruption in college basketball is likely to affect a ton of major programs. "Hall of Fame coaches" could be taken down.

Tonight, they published a new report. There are reportedly spreadsheets that detail how several top recruits and future NBA players were paid.

Basically, it sounds like if your school produced a top NBA Draft pick, you're probably involved. Yikes.

"Those spreadsheets cast a wide net throughout college basketball. If your school produced a first-round pick in the past three years, be worried,” a source told Yahoo! Sports.

Just for reference, here are some of the schools that have produced first-round picks in the past three years:

  • Duke
  • UNC
  • Kentucky
  • Kansas
  • Louisville
  • Michigan State
  • Oklahoma
  • Arizona
  • UCLA
  • Florida State
  • And a ton more

It also involves current NCAA players.

"Sources said this includes numerous prominent players in the upcoming NCAA tournament, the showcase of college basketball. 'It’s all there,' said a different source familiar with the investigation," writes Yahoo! Sports' Pete Thamel and Pat Forde.

Information on the investigation is likely to come out. And possibly soon.
