TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama coach Nick Saban told ESPN.com that school compliance officials are trying to determine if end Marcell Dareus violated NCAA rules by attending an agent’s party.
NCAA officials have reportedly interviewed North Carolina players and South Carolina’s Weslye Saunders regarding the same party in South Beach.
The ESPN report said the NCAA is trying to determine who paid for the trip. An Alabama spokesman said the school had no comment.
Dareus emerged as a rising star after winning defensive MVP honors in the BCS championship game win over Texas.
