OTL: Auburn academic fraud claim probed

(Patrick) #1

A source told Outside the Lines that a mentor in Auburn’s student-athlete support services department took an online final exam for at least one football player. The source said a tutor who worked with the mentor became aware of the alleged misconduct while reviewing a football player’s academic records in February, noticing that the player had received a perfect grade on a final exam only a few weeks into the course. The source said the player told the tutor he had not taken the exam.
