A NY grand jury reportedly subpoenaed Oklahoma State last month, seeking information from the university related to the FBI investigation into Lamont Evans, one of the assistant coaches linked to the corruption scandal that has rocked college basketball.

A NY grand jury has subpoenaed Oklahoma State search for records of NCAA rule violations.

CITY (AP) - Federal prosecutors seeking more information about the involvement of Oklahoma State basketball in a wider corruption scandal have asked the school to detail its communications with three key players in the investigation, as well as players and their parents.

Person was suspended without pay after prosecutors said the former National Basketball Association player accepted about $91,500 in bribes to steer clients to a Pittsburgh-based financial adviser when they reached the National Basketball Association.

AL.com reported the news Thursday, stating the school responded to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by them. A grand jury subpoena asks Oklahoma State to produce all communications between athletic officials and former sports agent Christian Dawkins, financial adviser Martin Blazer and investment adviser Munish Sood.

The Oklahoman obtained a copy of the subpoena through an open records request.

The information seeks information from cellphones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers, phones, emails and social media accounts.

"Failure to attend and produce any items hereby demanded will constitute contempt of court and will subject you to civil sanctions and criminal penalties, in addition to penalties of the law", Joon H. Kim, the acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of NY, stated in the subpoena, according to the report.

Oklahoma State has said since the news broke it will fully cooperate with authorities.

First-year Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton said he hasn't spoken with Evans, his lead assistant, since his arrest, though he has read every page of the FBI's investigation. Chuck Person (Auburn) and Emanuel "Book" Richardson (Arizona) appeared in front of the judge, as did Merl Code Jr., who was affiliated with Adidas' grassroots basketball department.
