South Carolina's Weslye Saunders Drawn Into NCAA Investigation of UNC

The investigation of agents' ties to players at North Carolina has now spread to at least one other school, with South Carolina TE (and N.C. native) Weslye Saunders now a subject of the NCAA inquiry. The school is confirming the investigation, but isn't saying much. Except, as you might expect, head coach Steve Spurrier, who promises that his program will deal with (read: suspend or dismiss) any ne'er-do-wells.

"We’re not going to look the other way like possibly Southern California did. We’re going to abide by the rules."

And they say he's losing his edge.

The broadening of the investigation to include South Carolina is already leading to speculation that other schools could also find themselves snared by the Association's look-see. Note that the questions about Maurkice Pouncey, while a separate issue, adds evidence that the NCAA has decided to crack down on agents after the Reggie Bush investigation.

Which means this fun could last through the summer and beyond.

For the South Carolina side of things, be sure to keep an eye on SBN's Garnet And Black Attack. And for the UNC developments, follow Carolina March.
