NCAA investigators spent at least two days in Coral Gables to inquire about the University of Miami's name, image and likeness transactions in the first indication by the governing body that it is taking at least the monitoring of NIL deals seriously.

Multiple sources told Sports Illustrated that the visits took place last week and included interviews with billionaire UM booster John Ruiz. Contacted Tuesday morning, Ruiz confirmed that he spoke to NCAA enforcement staff members last week in what he termed a general “interview.”

“I’m extremely comfortable with what we are doing. I have nothing to hide,” Ruiz told SI. “It went super well. The NCAA is trying to wrap their hands around this sudden change of environment. They’re trying to figure out how the landscape is working.”
