(Portland, OR)  --  A high-ranking Adidas official and another Adidas employee are facing charges in an NCAA basketball corruption probe.  Jim Gatto, a senior executive for the sports apparel company, has been accused of conspiring to bribe high school athletes to play for colleges sponsored by Adidas.  Investigators allege the 47-year-old engineered a 100-thousand-dollar payment to the family of an Indiana high school player to ensure he agreed to play for the University of Louisville.  They also allege he participated in a 150-thousand-dollar bribe to convince another athlete to attend an Adidas-sponsored school in Florida.  The case stems from a two-year FBI investigation that also implicated several basketball agents, college assistant coaches and another Adidas employee, Merl Code.
