Florida State has released a statement from athletic director Stan Wilcox stating that the FSU compliance office has found no evidence that Jameis Winston received money for signing autographs. The full statement is below:
STATEMENT FROM DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS STAN WILCOX
Our Athletics Department compliance staff is reviewing issues raised by the media related to autographed items attributed to Jameis Winston. At this time we have no information indicating that he accepted payment for items reported to bear his signature, thereby compromising his athletics eligibility. The fact that items appear on an Internet site bearing the signature of a student-athlete does not singularly determine a violation of NCAA rules.
We have kept both the conference office and the NCAA apprised of our efforts on this matter. The University takes very seriously any and all allegations of potential rules violations and processes them in accordance with ACC and NCAA policies and procedures.
