I’ve determined that if you’re a collegiate athlete, it’s probably best you lock yourself inside your dorm room and never turn on your computer. That’s about the only way you’re not going to get in trouble/fined, which Oklahoma defensive back Kass Everett quickly learned after expressing his interest in the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 5 video game, released today.

Everett took to Twitter, suggesting that he didn’t have the $60 dollars needed to buy the game.

That’s when current Arizona Cardinals player and former Sooner Tony Jefferson jokingly offered to give Everett cash for the game.

Everett, either playing along or actually thinking Jefferson was serious, suggested that they were buddies and to hook him up, which is when the Twitter account for Oklahoma Compliance stepped in to publicly remind both Everett and Jefferson that would be against NCAA rules.

Yes @tonyjefferson1, former SAs are considered boosters and may not provide benefits to current SAs #GTAVWillHaveToWait

Ouch.

I mean, it was just a matter of time before a lauded NCAA program fell into obscurity because of a video game, right?

    Sounds insane but money could easily be funneled by actual boosters to current athletes through former students now playing at the next level..
