DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — A person familiar with the investigation says the NCAA is looking into whether two players at North Carolina received improper benefits from agents.

Senior defensive tackle Marvin Austin and senior receiver Greg Little are the focus of the probe, the person told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is confidential.

The probe became public about a week ago after NCAA investigators visited the campus in Chapel Hill.

Coach Butch Davis was expected Thursday to make his first public comments on the inquiry. Davis is attending a football preview luncheon in Durham with Duke coach David Cutcliffe, East Carolina coach Ruffin McNeill, North Carolina Central coach Mose Rison and North Carolina State coach Tom O'Brien.
