The NCAA is looking into a claim from a convicted Ponzi schemer that he gave thousands of dollars worth of gifts and services to dozens of football players and recruits with the University of Miami Hurricanes.

Yahoo! Sports reporter Charles Robinson broke the story following an 11-month investigation into claims that Nevin Shapiro gave players gifts, jewelry, sex parties, and even an abortion for one player’s girlfriend.

Robinson doubts the NCAA will impose a “death penalty” on the Hurricane’s football program like it did at SMU.

The athletic association is still conducting its own review of the violations that allegedly took place between 2002 and 2010.  Shapiro’s lawyer says the gifts came to light when auditors were going through his books in an attempt to trace missing assets that were part of his $930-million Ponzi scheme.
