CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina defensive tackle Marvin Austin and receiver Greg Little will practice when the Tar Heels open training camp Friday despite being the focus of an NCAA investigation.
The NCAA is looking into whether Austin and Little received improper benefits from agents. Investigators notified the school in June of the inquiry and visited the campus to interview players on July 12 and 13. That's according to public records requested by The Associated Press from the school.
While the two players will practice, team spokesman Kevin Best says Austin and Little won't be available for comment.
The Tar Heels open the season against LSU in Atlanta on Sept. 4.
