Per ESPN reporter Adam Rittenberg, the players allegedly involved are:
• Second-year LB Martavius French: former 4-star recruit from Memphis Whitehaven, No. 17 ILB and No. 330 overall in 2020 class
• Incoming freshman LB Aaron Willis: 4-star recruit from Baltimore, No. 8 ILB and No. 137 overall
• Incoming freshman DT Isaac Washington: 3-star recruit from Pilot Mountain, N.C. , No. 50 DT and No. 810 overall.
