Quite the scandal came into the public light and was immediately hoisted to the top of the social media food chain. Unfortunately, the news involves an LA Galaxy original.

The Massachusetts Attorney’s Office announced this morning 47 individuals ranging from athletic coaches to exam administrators to parents have been charged with engaging in, quote, “A nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits” according to documents unsealed in a Boston federal court. Powerhouse schools such as Georgetown, Texas, USC, UCLA, Wake Forest and Yale are involved, with Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin among the high profile names to be indicted.

The names include Jorge Salcedo, a former player who has been charged with conspiracy to commit racketeering. The 24th overall pick in the inaugural MLS player draft, Jorge Salcedo wore the Galaxy colors for three combined seasons before eventually running the men’s program at UCLA.

We’ll have more on the subject as news continues to filter out to the public.
