attended the institution during the 1980s. White provided the admission in an online article on The Daily website. White reported he took $14,000 in illicit
payments during his four-year USC athletics career. White claims he received most of the money through selling game tickets provided to student-athletes. White was a receiver and special-teams student-athlete at USC and he played under head football coaches John Robinson and Ted Tollner from 1982-86.
