Nebraska guard pleads guilty to underage gambling charge
Ahron Ulis, a guard with the Nebraska basketball team, has pled guilty after he was charged with underage gambling, according to the Lincoln Journal-Star.
Ulis reportedly placed “approximately 1,850” bets with the FanDuel app, the Journal-Star’s Wilson Moore reported. “Among those bets, 740 were before he was 21 years old, the legal age to gamble in Iowa,” he wrote.
Ulis used his older brother’s information in order to sign up for a FanDuel account. As a result of the plea, no further prosecution will be pursued against Ulis or his brother, but Ulis has been fined $645.
Ulis is in his first season with Nebraska. Prior to coming to Lincoln, he was at Iowa for 3 seasons, where he averaged 6.1 points across 32 games and 27 starts in 2022-23.
However, his eligibility for the 2023-24 season could be in question since he bet on an Iowa football game while at the university, under NCAA regulations. He is currently practicing with the team, though, according to Moore.
