NBC Sports is now reporting that Rick Pitino knew about the scandal involving sex escorts being paid for by UL staff member Andre McGee.

Multiple players were mentioned in the book including Antonio Blakeney.

“Five-star LSU freshman Antonio Blakeney was explicitly mentioned in the book, with Powell going into detail about how an escort was sent to the hotel room that he was staying in. Ohio State’s five-star freshman Ja’Quan Lyle was also mentioned. Both players were, at one point, committed to Louisville.”

A very damning quote from the madame, Katina Powell, was released today from an interview with the Indianapolis Business Journal point out Rick Pitino knew about the escorts.

“When I would ask Andre, ‘Does Pitino know about this?’ he would laugh and say, ‘Rick knows about everything.’”
