NCSU breaks ties with former athlete Leak

Posted November 30, 2011

The North Carolina State athletics program dissociated from former NCSU athlete Eric Leak and any business owned by Leak 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 forward CJ Leslie and a relative with benefits totaling $410.

NC State reported violations to the NCAA. The university and the NCAA conducted a joint inquiry to determine the facts.

Forward CJ Leslie served a three game suspension and returned to competition Nov. 19th against Vanderbilt.

Following an auto accident in May 2011, Leslie borrowed a car from a friend and former NC State student. He used the car for about a week. In addition, the facts indicate that the same former student paid apartment application fees for Leslie's half-brother.

Leslie also will make charitable contributions of $410. The contributions represent the value of the car had it been rented ($150) and the application fees ($260).

Leak also admitted providing $1,349 in impermissible benefits to a former student athlete, Tracy Smith, which remains the subject of further review and handling through standard NCAA processes.

Leak is banned from purchasing season tickets for any sports or to lease 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.

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

    The current violations at NCSU vs. unCHEAT (University of Nobody Cares) are not even in the same ballpark as far as the intensity or scale!! All unCHEAT bandwagon fans don't even try and compare. Nope won't work!!

    Wow, for somebody with an UNC avatar, so I guess you might have went to UNC, my question, is being able to read a requirement for getting into UNC?. Evidently not. Article states that the NCAA is investigating the incidents. At least State did notify the NCAA of the infractions unlike another school that covered up theirs. Leslie's violations were minor and apperantly over with. Smith on the other hand could be major violations because of the amount of the benefits. Also, if I were you I would not want the NCAA to try and tie it into the football program. Neither Leslie nor Smith were part of the football program, however Greg Little of UNC's football team was also a member of UNC's basketball team. So if the NCAA starts tying in one program with another, that could be bad news for UNC's basketball program. Little has already admitted to the violations and that might be what is taking the NCAA so long to complete their investigation. By rule the NCAA could hand down the same punishment to the basketball team as to the football team for Little's violations.

    The only Indiana news I've seen recently shows NC State losing a basketball game there.

    I just wish the NCAA would investigate NC State's two-time national championship bass fishing program. Somebody must be using an illegal rubber worm for bait.

    Starting with tonight's loss to Indiana? Cheaters never win.

    If all the infractions were so minor as you claim and you do not seem to think there are any implications coming why not just keep Leak. No need to ban him from the facilities. After all it's only a borrowed car ? Ha Ha Ha
