A video of Clemson assistant basketball coach Steve Smith was presented at the basketball corruption trial on New York on Thursday.
The video reportedly shows Smith talking about the recruitment of basketball player Zion Williamson.
Clemson released the following statement:
"We are aware of the developments in federal court today involving one of our men’s basketball assistant coaches. We take this matter seriously and will immediately conduct a review."
Smith has been an assistant basketball coach at Clemson since 2012.
Another video wiretap was played that included Clemson assistant coach Steve Smith talking to Christian Dawkins and an undercover FBI agent about the recruitment and potential payments to be made to Zion Williamson's family. These wiretaps were caught in July of 2017.— Matt Norlander (@MattNorlander) April 25, 2019
