Former Wolfpack player barred from campus

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina State says it has sent a "no trespass" letter to a former Wolfpack football player already banned from contacting athletes for violating NCAA rules, barring Eric Leak and his wife from school property.

In a statement Wednesday, spokesman Brad Bohlander said university police notified the former Wolfpack receiver this month after the school discovered his wife's car received two campus parking tickets during the spring semester.

The school had sent the Leaks a disassociation letter in November 2011 for providing improper benefits to two former basketball players, then referred concerns about him in September 2012 to the North Carolina Secretary of State's office after he spoke with ex-Wolfpack football player David Amerson.

The disassociation letter banned the Leaks from making athletics donations or contacting athletes for 10 years.

The state's Uniform Athlete Agents Act requires agents to register with the Secretary of State's office and prohibits agents or their representatives from providing gifts to college athletes that could jeopardize a player's eligibility.

"Through the disassociation, the referral to the Secretary of State, and the trespass letter, N.C. State has actively distanced N.C. State athletics and student-athletes from Eric and Emily Leak," Bohlander said. "The ongoing investigation is being managed by the Secretary of State, and the university therefore cannot provide additional details at this time."

George Jeter, a spokesman for the Secretary of State's office, said in an email Wednesday that investigators are "looking into this matter since Mr. Leak is not registered in North Carolina as an athlete agent." He declined further comment.

The school discovered the tickets after a records request from USA Today.

The 2011 disassociation letter came after Leak, who played for the Wolfpack from 1997-2000, was connected to providing improper benefits to former basketball player C.J. Leslie. Leslie was suspended for the first three games of the 2011-12 season after borrowing a car for about a week after a wreck while his half brother received $260 in apartment application fees.

In addition, Leak told The News and Observer of Raleigh that year that he helped former basketball player Tracy Smith with two rent payments and Smith later repaid him.

The school said the conversation between Leak and Amerson, now with the NFL's Washington Redskins, took place in June 2012. The school sent the Leaks a cease-and-desist letter outlining the disassociation terms and saying it would contact the Secretary of State's office to determine if he had violated the state's agent law.
