NC State issues no trespass letter to Eric Leak

Posted October 23, 2013

NCSU Wolfpack fans came out to tailgate and show their team spirit before Friday's football game against FSU Seminoles at Carter-Finley Stadium, Raleigh NC.

North Carolina State University Police have issued a "no trespass" letter to former NC State football player Eric Leak and his wife, Emily, that prohibits them from stepping onto school property, the university said Wednesday.

The letter comes after the university learned that Emily Leak's automobile had been ticketed twice on campus during the spring of 2013. 

The North Carolina State athletics program banned Eric Leak and any business associates from campus in November 2011 after it was determined he provided impermissible benefits to a current and former student athlete.

NC State learned during an NCAA interview that Leak provided former basketball player CJ Leslie and a relative with benefits totaling $410. At the time, Leak also admitted providing $1,349 in impermissible benefits to another former basketball player, Tracy Smith.

"Through the disassociation, the referral to the Secretary of State, and the trespass letter, NC State has actively distanced NC State Athletics and student athletes from Eric and Emily Leak," the university said in a statement Wednesday. "The ongoing investigation is being managed by the Secretary of State, and the university therefore cannot provide additional details at this time."

Leak was banned from purchasing season tickets for any sports and from leasing football or basketball suites. He is not allowed to have any contact with any current or future student athlete or any employee of the athletic department.

In September 2012, the university confirmed Leak made contact with former football player David Amerson in June 2011. The contact was not ruled an NCAA violation, but was a violation of the terms of Leak’s disassociation from the program.

“Eric Leak was notified by NC State that he is not to have contact with our current and future student-athletes in all sports for any purpose during the period of disassociation,” NC State officials said in a statement. “This ban extends to all forms of in-person contact and all known or future methods of communication. It appears that Eric Leak is in violation of this letter."

The terms of Leak's disassociation last 10 years. However, there is no outlined punishment for violating the terms of the agreement.

A wide receiver for the Wolfpack, Leak played from 1997-00.

    While State is doing the right thing by issuing the "no trespass" letter to Leak and his family, Leak can't be stopped from approaching athletes off State's property, at which point it's up to the athlete to report any contact to the school. At least State took action, time will tell if the action will serve as a deterrent to Leak and others.

    See, it happens at many other universities. Now other schools can start covering up all their infractions.

    Glad to hear NC State doesn't mess around with these types of issues. We've all seen what happens when you fail to address them...

    So, I guess you missed where he previously gave impermissible benefits to basketball players that were discovered after the fact?

    Off Campus is easy. Tell player John Doe, "If you are caught talking to a known agent, or taking anything of value from them, you will be immediately banned from school X and any educational benefit you received from the university will have to be paid back. Good luck in your future endeavors."

    Leak lent Leslie a vehicle in 2011 and paid for the application fee for an apartment rental for a half-brother of Leslie’s. Leak said he allowed Leslie to use his car after Leslie got into a car accident, which occurred on May 25, according to a Raleigh police department accident report.

    The NCAA estimated the value of the car that Leslie borrowed, had it been rented, to be $150. Leak said the car that Leslie borrowed was registered under the name of his wife Emily Leak. She is also addressed at the top of the disassociation letter, but Leak said his wife “has absolutely nothing to do with any of this.”

    Leak disputed the fact that he paid for the apartment application fee for Kevin Leslie, C.J. Leslie’s half-brother. The NCAA valued that fee at $260. Leslie had to repay the total of $410 to charity as part of his punishment, in addition to the three-game suspension that he completed.

    The disassociation letter also states that Leak paid the rent of a “former student-athlete” in 2010. Leak said he gave Smith, who finished his four-year basketball career at N.C. State in March, two rent payments. According to the university’s previous release about Leslie’s suspension, the payments were worth $1,349.

    Smith, the team’s top scorer each of the last two seasons, is playing professional basketball in Pakistan and could not be reached for comment.

    Leak said he and Smith are friends and have been since Smith was in high school at Mount Zion Academy in Durham. The two would hang out and play video games at Leak’s home in Raleigh, Leak said. Smith was late on his rent and needed the money, Leak said. Smith borrowed the money and repaid him, Leak said.

    “I was put between a rock and a hard place, and I made a decision,” Leak said. “Honestly, the NCAA was the furthest thing from my mind. I was just trying to help a friend.”
