NCAA investigators will return to Columbia this week as part of their ongoing probe into possible illegal activity between sports agents and college football players, two sources told The State on Tuesday.
NCAA officials met with South Carolina tight end Weslye Saunders last month about whether the senior from Durham, N.C., engaged in any impermissible dealings with agents.
Investigators are expected to speak with Saunders again, perhaps as early as today, according to one of the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. It is not clear whether any other USC athletes or officials will be questioned.
USC athletics director Eric Hyman said the school would work with the NCAA.
Upon any request from the NCAA, we will continue to cooperate and assist in any way we can, Hyman said in a statement released through the school.
