Lawson said had no knowledge of a pay-for-play scheme and is "a million percent confident that Cam Newton took no money from no one."
Lawson said Cam and both of his parents have spoken to the NCAA.
He was not asked about whether or not Cecil talked about money with Mississippi State boosters during his son's recruitment last year.
Here is a full transcript of Winne's interview with Lawson:
(Who are you?)UPDATE, 4:22 p.m.: Meanwhile, Kenny Rogers' lawyer, Doug Zeit told the Clarion-Ledger today that Cecil Newton solicited the money.
"I represent the Newton family and particularly Cam Newton."
(Has he taken money?)
"No money has been offered to Cam. Cam Newton has not asked for any money."
(Talked to NCAA?)
"Cam Newton, Cecil Newton and Jackie Newton have participated in the ongoing NCAA investigation. They have been truthful and candid with the NCAA and will continue to cooperate with the NCAA and will produce and answer any and all questions that the NCAA has for them."
(Cam didn't know?)
"I don't think there's any question that Cam knew nothing about any money discussions, if any discussions were had."
(Cecil truthful with NCAA?)
"I would suggest to you that what Cecil Newton said to the NCAA has been truthful. What Jackie Newton has been truthful. What Cam Newton has said has been truthful."
(Any infusions of cash?)
"Absolutely not. Absolutely not. They have a very modest lifestyle."
"I know nothing about an FBI investigation. I don't even know if the FBI is investigating that. I've had occasion to see probably the same thing you've seen on ESPN. That's all I know about it. "
(Academic situation at Florida?)
"Cam Newton's grades and academic standing at the University of Florida are protected matters. And to the extent that the University of Florida has violated a federal statute, I have some understanding to what the University of Florida's address is and at some point in time they'll hear from me."
"I'm not suggesting what it would be, but the University of Florida will hear from me?"
(On behalf of ...?)
(About his records?)
"If the University of Florida has disclosed unlawfully Cam's personal and private records, then I will be talking to the University of Florida about that."
(Are those reports accurate?)
"No, they're not accurate. He's a very polished, he's a very smart young man and at this point in his life, he's a mature young man. He's much more mature than what most 21-year-olds would be with all the things he has gone through in his life."
(100 percent sure he took no money?)
"I am a million percent confident that Cam Newton took no money from no one."
(He knew nothing about solicitation?)
"I would suggest to you he knew nothing about any solicitation of any money from anyone."
“We are unequivocally saying that the entire thing was solicited by Cecil Newton and, unfortunately, (Rogers) stupidly became a rubber hose and passed it along," Zeit told the paper. "That’s what (Rogers) did. (He) never asked for money, other than what Cecil Newton wanted and how he wanted it.”Zeit said Rogers sent MSU booster Bill Bell a text message outlining the plan.
“(Rogers) said that’s what (Cecil) Newton wanted me to send and that’s what I sent,” Zeit said.
