Nevin Shapiro on Robinson: Play audio

Miami booster Nevin Shapiro alleges he provided a handful of extra benefits to Marcus Robinson during his career with the Hurricanes. Among the benefits he claimed to have provided:

• A dinner at Japanese steakhouse Benihana and drinks, VIP access and entertainment at The Cheetah in 2008.

• Food, drinks and entertainment at Shapiro's $6 million mansion on at least one occasion.

Corroborating accounts

• One source corroborated Robinson and other Miami players receiving a dinner at Benihana and a strip club visit to The Cheetah in 2008 which was paid by Shapiro.

In Shapiro's words

• "I met him probably about three or four times. He was in my house once or twice. I do remember one time he was in the strip joint with us at the Cheetah. Not a long relationship with him, but he was certainly around a few of the situations."
