STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Dez Bryant believes the NCAA was
"unfair" in its handling of his rules violation case at Oklahoma
State and judged him based on the belief that Deion Sanders had
been serving as a runner for an agent instead of the accusation
that he lied to an investigator.
Bryant said in an interview Wednesday that Sanders did not
introduce him to agent Eugene Parker during an offseason meeting in
Texas that eventually led to a yearlong suspension. Bryant, a
top-rated wide receiver, instead left school and entered his name
in this year's NFL draft.
Bryant says he has matured as a result of the situation, and he
is now focused on the combine next week in Indianapolis and the
draft in April.
