ASM Sports has become central to investigations into college basketball corruption, and new documents related to the ongoing case linked at least 20 Division I schools and more than two dozen players to an underground recruiting operation, Yahoo! Sports reported.

The probe has been unfolding for months and has already charged several college coaches for their involvement in a wider corruption scheme that saw them, advisers and others use their status to influence high school recruits to sign with schools, Sports Illustrated noted.

Now federal documents obtained by Yahoo! Sports detail a recruiting operation violating NCAA rules and links top schools and players such as former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz and current stars Miles Bridges and Collin Sexton, to Miller and his agency.

According to the documents, dozens of players on a 2015 balance sheet were granted five-figure loans while they were in school and were provided with impermissible benefits and preferential treatment for themselves and their families.

NCAA president Mark Emmert said in a statement that, if true, the allegations "point to systematic failures that must be fixed and fixed now if we want college sports in America."

He noted that "people who engage in this kind of behavior have no place in college sports," and committed to "making transformational changes to the game and ensuring all involved in college basketball do so with integrity."

Yahoo reached out to various schools included in the report and, while many did not respond, Xavier coach Chris Mack denied having any connections to Miller and his agency, SB Nation reported.
