The Jovan Vavic trial has caused the release of a new batch of emails tied to the Varsity Blues scandal
USC associate athletic director Alexandra Reisman is a key figure in the emails according to the Wall Street Journal.
“Will be at least a $1 million ask if we get her in,” Reisman wrote in 2013 to Donna Heinel regarding a potential student’s family.
In another email, Reisman said a grandfather had founded beer company.
“They’re like the Anheuser Busch family $$$$,” she wrote.
The Journal noted that in a 2016 email to Heinel, Reisman complained the family of an admitted student potentially “was going to screw us on a gift.
“We shouldn’t get the student a job until we get a gift first,” she wrote, referring to a role the teen wanted with the football team.
“You’ve done enough to get her in—they need to pay up,” Reisman wrote.
USC told the Journal today its admissions office had been deceived by Vavic.
“USC and our admissions processes are not on trial,” the university said.
