LOS ANGELES (AP) – Southern California says officials from its athletic department met with the student who provided the golf-cart ride to freshman tailback Dillon Baxter before the incident and
told him it was against NCAA rules.

Baxter missed USC’s 36-7 loss at Oregon State on Saturday night after the contact with Teague Egan, the CEO of 1st Round Enterprises.

ESPN.com reported Sunday night that Egan is registered as a contract adviser with the NFL Players Association, and 1st Round Enterprises advertises services for athletes that include contract negotiations and endorsement deals.

The school says three senior officials met with Egan before Baxter’s free ride Thursday and told him the cart trips would be against NCAA rules.
