Washington denies Robinson's claim


SEATTLE

Washington says it has no knowledge of claims made by former football and basketball player Nate Robinson of being offered money by a booster to return to playing football.

The school issued a statement on Wednesday in response to Robinson’s claim he was offered $100,000 by an unnamed booster to return to playing football at the school after he quit the sport to focus on basketball. Washington says based on Robinson’s statement it appears there were no NCAA violations, but “we look forward to following up with Nate and any other relevant parties to learn more about this matter in hopes of continuing to foster a full environment of compliance within all of our athletic programs.”
