Federal prosecutors in New York on Tuesday added additional criminal counts to the indictment of Adidas executive James Gatto, alleging he conspired to provide cash payments to the families of former basketball players at Kansas, Louisville, Miami and NC State.

It marks the first time Kansas and North Carolina State have been mentioned in the list of universities caught up in the federal bribery scandal in college basketball.

The superseding indictment also alleges that Adidas consultant Merl Code and Christian Dawkins, a runner for former NBA agent Andy Miller, conspired with Gatto to commit wire fraud and pay $100,000 to the father of Louisville recruit Brian Bowen.
