Unlikely the NCAA will find the proof they need - which doesn't mean it didn't happen.
5 figures/the # of alledged items is large enough that you'd think some kind of paper trail could be reasonably followed.
If the NCAA looks at phone records, texts, bank records, witness statements etc and can't find a single reason to suspect the allegations are true, then really it's reasonable to assume it didn't happen given the size of the special benefit alledged. That said, they may not get access to that kind of information in this investigation.

This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
