Former Oregon TE Colt Lyerla said he was promised "a house, a car, all these things" by a Ducks' booster.
Per SB Nation's profile: "Lyerla declines publicly to identify the man, a powerful University of Oregon booster known to the family. The adviser made the benefits of that decision clear. If Lyerla went to Oregon, 'I was promised a house, a car, all these things.'" The story went on to say that Lyerla was pressured by his mother to attend the school. "[She] leaned on her son to sign with the Ducks, a change Lyerla believes was made with the best intentions, but inspired by her precarious living situation." According to SB Nation, Lyerla received none of the benefits he was promised. "I felt played," Lyerla said. Whether the story is true or not, Lyerla, a five-star recruit who didn't pan out and left school early due to off-field issues, is far from a reputable source. Oregon doesn't figure to face sanctions over his allegations. Wed, Sep 3, 2014 05:33:00 PM
