Iowa State Quarterback Hunter Dekkers is in some huge trouble.
Hunter Dekkers has been accused of gambling on Cyclones sports, including a football game, and was charged Tuesday with tampering with records related to an Iowa Criminal Division investigation into sports gambling.
Dekkers is accused of making 26 bets on Cyclone sporting events, including a game versus Oklahoma State in 2021 while he was a backup, according to the Des Moines Register. He placed a total of 366 bets on sports on the internet worth more than $2,799, 297 of which were placed when he was under the age of 21. This means he was not legally allowed to gamble.
The complaint also alleges that Dekkers engaged in the scheme with his parents, Scott and Jami Dekkers. It enabled him to create the appearance that the bets being placed by Hunter Dekkers were being placed by Jami Dekkers.
In the widespread investigation, Iowa State football players Dodge Sauser, former Iowa State football player Eyioma Uwazurike and Iowa State wrestler Paniro Johnson are also charged with tampering with records in the investigation.
Sauser is said to have made 113 online bets that totaled over $3,000. About 12 of those bets were placed on Iowa State games.
Uwazurike made about 801 online bets totaling over $21,300. Four wagers were placed on Iowa State games. He also placed about 32 online bets on Denver Broncos games as he was drafted by the team at the time.
Paniro Johnson made about 1,283 online bets that totaled over $45,600.
Dekkers is set to appear in court on Aug. 16th.
