Rose Bowl most valuable player Leroy Hoard of the University of Michigan said he once was offered a suitcase full of cash to attend a college on a football scholarship.

The sophomore fullback said on a Detroit radio program Sunday that a person who was not a coach or officially connected with the school offered him $150,000 in a suitcase in a restaurant in New Orleans.Asked if the person offering the money was an alumnus or booster, Hoard said, "Yeah, something like that."
