REPORT FBI records Will Wade recruiting conversation ‘offer’ discussed

Wade didn't address Thursday's Yahoo report in front of the fans, nor did they ask him about it, but Wade commented on the matter during his previously scheduled media appearance Thursday.

The tape doesn't reference any specifics about the "offer" or whether it violated NCAA rules, according to Yahoo Sports.

"It was a [expletive] hell of a [expletive] offer", Wade allegedly said.

"I haven't read it".

During the call, Wade can be heard complaining about the offer made to Smart.

"I was thinking last night on this Smart thing", Wade told Dawkins, according to Yahoo Sports. "I'll be honest with you, I'm.exhausted of dealing with the thing.Like, this should not be that [expletive] complicated". "Like, this should not be that [expletive] complicated".

As far back as last October when Wade's name was reported as one of the coaches involved in the pay-for-play scandal, Wade has denied he had "ever done business of any kind with Christian Dawkins or Mr. Dawkins". The context of that discussion was not discussed.

The latest report regarding LSU coach Will Wade's alleged involvement with former agent turned convicted felon Christian Dawkins dropped just minutes before Wade's tip-off luncheon at L'auberge Casino.
