Miss. St.: Contacted SEC on Cam Newton

Starkville, Miss. -- Mississippi State officials say they let the Southeastern Conference know about contacts the school had with highly regarded quarterback Cam Newton.

The school released a statement indicating it had notified conference officials of "an issue" coaches had encountered this year when Newton, a Heisman Trophy candidate now playing for Auburn, was seeking a new college after leaving Florida in 2008.

Multiple media sources have reported NCAA investigators are probing allegations that a man connected to an NFL agent had been "shopping" Newton's services to various colleges, including Mississippi State, in exchange for payments.

Newton and his father have denied the allegations.
