The NCAA is investigating University of South Carolina tight end Weslye Saunders about possible rules violations, Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier confirmed Sunday night.
It is believed the investigation of Saunders is connected to the NCAAâ€™s ongoing probe concerning of University of North Carolina football players and agent activity. Saunders, a senior from Durham, N.C., has several friends on the Tar Heelsâ€™ team, including defensive tackle Marvin Austin, who is at the center of the UNC investigation.
Spurrier said he did not know specifically what the NCAA asked Saunders. But a source said NCAA officials are looking into whether agents paid for the airfare and hotel rooms for recent trips taken by Saunders and North Carolina players.
