South Carolina's Saunders to practice Tuesday night

Posted August 3, 2010

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina tight end Weslye Saunders hasn't said much since speaking with the NCAA last month. And he likely won't get the chance to talk after the Gamecocks' opening practice.

South Carolina athletic spokesman Steve Fink says Saunders is expected to participate when South Carolina starts fall workouts on Tuesday night. However, Saunders was not cleared by coach Steve Spurrier to speak to the media after the session.

Spurrier identified Saunders, the 6-foot-6 senior, as the Gamecock player interviewed by NCAA investigators looking into possible rules violations at a party on Miami's South Beach in May.

Spurrier has said Saunders told the coach he'd done nothing wrong. The 273-pound Saunders finished third on the team with 32 receptions last year. His size and agility have him projected by some as a first-round NFL pick next April.
