NCAA probe of UNC also involves South Carolina

The (Columbia) State newspaper is reporting today that Durham native Weslye Saunders, a senior tight end at South Carolina, was also interviewed by NCAA officials about his possible involvement with agents.

Joseph Person of The State reports that Saunders was interviewed by the NCAA last week in Columbia. UNC football players Marvin Austin and Greg Little are the center of an NCAA investigation about their possible involvement with agents.

Saunders, the son of News and Observer metro columnist Barry Saunders, is friends with Austin. Saunders considered entering the NFL Draft following last season and received information from the league's underclassman advisory committee. But he changed his mind in January and stayed in school at South Carolina.
