Eric Leak Banned from NCSU Campus

In the ever weirder saga of disassociated booster Eric Leak, USA Today reported yesterday that the former Wolfpack Football receiver has been issued a letter from campus police warning him that if he, or his wife Emily, are found to be on campus, they will be immediately arrested and charged with trespassing.

This move from the university comes after it came to light, apparently by way of a USA Today public records request, that Emily Leak’s vehicle had been ticketed TWICE on campus this past spring.

N.C. State’s ‘no trespass’ letter to disassociated booster Eric Leak (

North Carolina State university police have issued a “no trespass” letter to disassociated booster Eric Leak and his wife Emily one month after a USA TODAY Sports public records request revealed that a vehicle registered to the couple was cited for campus parking tickets.


N.C. State formally disassociated Leak from the program on Nov. 23, 2011, after the NCAA found that he provided basketball players C.J. Leslie and Tracy Smith with extra benefits. The disassociation letter, which was obtained by USA TODAY Sports, states that Leak is prohibited from “any contact” with N.C. State athletes during the 10-year period of the disassociation.

Leslie received a three-game suspension during the 2011-2012 basketball season because he and his half-brother had received $410 worth of benefits.

Concerns were raised in September 2012 that Leak was not honoring the disassociation letter. The Raleigh News & Observer quoted Leak that month saying that he had contacted then-N.C. State football player David Amerson in June 2012.

The story is also being reported locally by WRAL, the Observers, and The State…among others.

As an aside, if you bother to read the comments on some of those links, you’ll see just how delusional many U*NC fans have become.

The Letter….

Dear Mr Leak

This letter and the attached notice is a trespass warning from NCSU Campus Police Department. We have been recently made aware of a disassociation letter issued to Mr Leak by the NCSU Athletic Department on November 23, 2011. The Transportation Department at NCSU has a record of one or more of your vehicles being on campus and receiving parking citations for violations in areas are Athletic Facilities as recently as May 2013. In addition, a background check of Mr Leak has revealed a current Order of Arrest out of Union County from 2003. Due to these situations and your non-affiliation with the university, you are hereby trespassed from ALL OWNED OR LEASED NCSU PROPERTY and not allowed to be on such property. This order is in effect as of this date and will be in effect immediately.

If you feel this action has been unfairly taken upon you there are instructions on the reverse side to appeal the trespass warning. If you wish to appeal, follow those instructions to the letter, but do not return to campus until you are instructed that you are allowed to do so or you will be arrested for trespassing.

So yeah, I’m happy to know the university is both aware of, and proactively addressing this.

I’m not so pleased that Mr. Leak apparently feels he can risk his alma mater’s standing with the NCAA even further.  Not to mention his own legal standing considering that this issue had already been referred to the NCSoS to determine if Leak has (again) violated the state’s Uniform Athlete Agent Act.

How blatantly stupid and/or brazen can one be?

Oh, and he also has an outstanding arrest warrant out of Union County.

And as much as I hate to admit it….

Nor am I particularly pleased that a major national media outlet such as USA Today feels it has reason to be doing public records requests about anything to do with the athletics department or university in general.  I hope everyone is doing what they oughta and not doing what they ought not.

Or at least covering their tracks well (that’s a joke…I think).

    So if CJL was suspended 3 games for $410 in benefits, Hairston would be on the hook for the whole season for $15k, no?

    Glad to see we’re proactive and ahead of this (from all appearances). Comparisons to *nc-ch are unavoidable, and end up pretty damning in terms of their handling of the past 3+ years of mess.

    On the way in to the office this morning I felt like sending Mike Maniscalco a huge box of kiss-my-ass for insisting over and over and over again that “this may only be the tip of the iceberg” and “what else could they not be disclosing” yadee yadee.

    The only good thing about his unfounded tirade was that perhaps only a couple of hundred listeners (or a few dozen?) heard it.

    And you know damned well that USA Today and other local media are wanting to ignite some scandal on the other end of I-40.

    I have said many times that considering we (as in State fans) have been spearheading the digging into the cesspool at the Hill, we (as in the University) better be damn sure that we are keeping our noses squeaky clean. Without sound too conspiracy theory-ish, we know the number of UNCCH alums in the news media, and we know that via FOIA requests those members of media can dig into our program all they want. I appreciate that we are being proactive with this, but we need to make sure that we stay out ahead of these stories, like the Heels have been so good at doing.

    My first thought was…

    How many times has Ms. Leak’s car been on campus and NOT been ticketed?

  5. Texpack 10/24/2013 at 1:06 PM #

    At UNC-CH the letter would have informed him of their “rental car program” so his tickets couldn’t be traced back to him.

    DY does not play! According to Fats Hayden who has supplied multible cars to UNC’s star b-ball player PJ, the school has never even contacted him. Sure is a difference how things are handled just 24 miles apart.

    Also, what is troubling to me is why they were looking in the first place? Is it the result of a fishing expedition by the media with regards to what cars our players are driving, being ticketed in, etc. ? Or were they specifically looking for Leak? And if so, why? Again, I just hope we are miles ahead of this news.

    Do we even have any guys considered NFL prospects? Who could Leak be after?

    Well played Debbie. Nip it, nip it in the bud.

    Leak wasn’t after anyone. He clearly had a relationship with Amerson.

    Do we get to vacate all the times DA was burned last year?

    In my dream world the n&o pens an editorial commending state for out integrity and transparency and subsequently attacks chapel hill for their lack of integrity and demands the end to athletics at UNC.

    usually, when it’s banned…you get more of it.
    unless there’s a huge price to pay for violations.
    then you get more of it ONCE.
