Thursday marked the 18-month anniversary of Penn’s Jerome Allen investigation announcement

A quick note to readers of Ivy Hoops Online that Thursday marked the 18-month anniversary of the Penn Athletics announcement that it would be hiring outside legal counsel to look into Jerome Allen receiving bribes from Florida businessman Philip Esformes to place Esformes’s son, Morris Esformes, onto the recruited athlete list for the entering Fall 2015 class.  The information was revealed as federal authorities were investigating the elder Esformes for healthcare fraud.

While Allen and the elder Esformes were sentenced for their crimes and the younger Esformes graduated from Wharton this past May, Penn officials have still not released the findings of that report.

Hopefully, Penn President Amy Gutmann, Director of Athletics Grace Calhoun and/or Dean of Admission Eric Furda will see fit to release the details of the report and the school’s instituted reforms before the two-year anniversary.

In the meantime, here are two recent editorials from IHO and the Daily Pennsylvanian about this matter:
