TMZ: The FBI wants to talk to John Bond

TMZ Sports is reporting that the FBI is involved in the Cam Newton college recruiting controversy, and has requested a meeting with John Bond.

TMZ says the FBI wants to find out if "young men are being shopped to colleges."

Bond, a former Mississippi State football standout, said people connected to Heisman frontrunner contacted him last year and said it would take $180-thousand-dollars to get Newton to commit to MSU.

Newton eventually decided on Auburn, and is one of the top quarterbacks in the country.

Bond's attorney has confirmed to TMZ Sports that the FBI has requested a sit-down meeting with his client.

Newton has denied any wrong-doing. He remains eligible to play and will start this weekend against Georgia.
