A video shot on the pitch after LSU’s 42:25 win over Clemson in the college football playoff title game in New Orleans on Monday night shows Odell Beckham celebrating the win and handing out cash to the players.
In a situation that appears to violate the NCAA rules, you can see the LSU alum handing out bills to junior wide receivers Justin Jefferson and Jontre Kirklin.

Before the LSU victory, Beckham sent the team members new Beats headphones and a motivating message. This was not a violation of the NCAA, but it seems like if you blatantly hand out money after a win, it will likely fall into another category.
In a separate video taken after the game in the LSU’s dressing room, Beckham tells the camera that he will sell a pair of Jefferson’s studs for $ 20,000. The Dallas Cowboys who ran back Ezekiel Elliott, who played college football in the state of Ohio, can also be seen in the video.

Jefferson, who had nine catches for 106 yards when defeating Clemson, had 18 touchdowns and more than 1,500 receiving yards for the LSU this season. Should he decide to leave school, no discipline that the NCAA holds will really affect him.
Kirklin, who has also played defensively for the Tigers and is expected to return in the past season, is likely to have less of an prospect of an NFL than Jefferson, making the NCAA’s potential sanctions for his stock proposal worse.
