Patriots defense lineman Vince Wilfork issued the following statement via Twitter on Wednesday evening regarding a Yahoo! Sports report on Tuesday that named Wilfork as one of several University of Miami players who received improper benefits from booster Nevin Shapiro:

"I am aware of the report that has claims that involve me while at the U. While the NCAA and the U conduct their investigations @Mrs75 and I believe that it is not appropriate for us to comment. Thanks for your continued support and confidence in me."

The NCAA is currently investigating the report.
