"All we can do is confirm we are looking into this matter since Mr. Leak is not registered in North Carolina as an athlete agent," said a spokesperson with the NC Secretary of State's office Tuesday.
Eric Leak is accused of providing improper benefits to basketball players CJ Leslie and Tracy Smith. Leak has also been connected to former Wolfpack football player David Amerson.
Eric and Emily Leak were sent a formal letter of disassociation by the NC State athletic department in November 2011. NC State sent Leak another letter in 2012 requesting he cease and desist from contacting any NC state student athletes, and requested assistance from the Secretary of State in investigating whether Eric Leak was acting in violation of the Uniform Athlete Agent Act.
On October 23, 2013 the University issued a trespass warning to both Leak and his wife, banning them from all school properties indefinitely, after it was discovered her car had been issued two parking tickets on the NC State campus.
An NC State spokesperson says "through the disassociation, the referral to the Secretary of State, and the trespass letter, NC State has actively distanced NC State Athletics and student athletes from Eric and Emily Leak."
