NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WDRB) — ESPN released more details of its Sunday Outside the Lines report about the University of Louisville basketball sex-for-recruits allegations, including the first video of Andre McGee since the allegations surfaced.

McGee is alleged to have arranged parties for recruits with former Louisville escort Katina Powell, and provided, according to her, more than $10,000 in payments. You can watch a preview of the report here.

ESPN caught up with McGee in Kansas City, where a source told WDRB News he is driving an Uber. A preview video from ESPN shows John Barr in the back seat of McGee’s car asking questions, but doesn’t show any answers from McGee.

That’s probably because McGee offered none. A source told WDRB’s Jason Riley that an ESPN crew called McGee for a ride, and when they got into his back seat pulled out a camera and told him this was his chance to talk. He said he didn’t want to talk. According to the source, Barr then told him that was a bad idea. Barr, responding to a text message to Jason Riley, says he never said that to McGee. The source told Riley that after several questions, McGee asked the crew to get out.

ESPN spent time in Louisville on Tuesday morning, interviewing Powell in Louisville’s Seelbach hotel.

The report is expected to include some new developments in the story that has been dogging the Louisville basketball program since October. It airs at 9 a.m. Sunday on ESPN2.
