GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates says the players are trying to keep their focus on the season amid an NCAA investigation into the program.
Yates and defensive end Robert Quinn met with reporters Sunday at the Atlantic Coast Conference Football Kickoff preseason event, marking the first time any Tar Heel player has commented about the inquiry.
The NCAA is looking into whether senior defensive tackle Marvin Austin and senior receiver Greg Little received any improper benefits from agents.
Yates says the team is moving forward under the belief that the Tar Heels will be at full strength for the opener against LSU in Atlanta.
