Marvin Austin Testifies In Government Investigation

UNC's Marvin Austin gave testimony at the offices of the North Carolina Secretary of State Friday, as part of an investigation into possible violations of state law by parties acting as sports agents:

[Secretary of State Elaine] Marshall's office began its review shortly after the NCAA launched an investigation into the school's football program in July. That probe initially focused on whether Austin and receiver Greg Little received improper benefits from agents, which led Marshall's office to subpoena Austin earlier this month.
Violating the state's agent laws, which require agents to register and prohibit them from offering gifts before a contract is signed, can lead to criminal or civil penalties.

Barring some extraordinary reversal, UNC will still be down twelve players, most of them would-be starters, when the Tar Heels host Georgia Tech Saturday.
