ATLANTA — Georgia associate athletic director Claude Felton says the NCAA has requested permission to conduct an inquiry on campus.
Felton says Georgia officials assured the NCAA it will receive full cooperation. He says the NCAA has asked that athletic association officials, coaches and student-athletes decline comment until the inquiry is completed.
Felton says the notification from the NCAA came late Wednesday afternoon. He tells The Associated Press the instructions from the NCAA prevent him from disclosing any details about the reason for the inquiry.
The inquiry comes as three SEC teams — Florida, Alabama and South Carolina — are investigating allegations involving improper contact with an agent.
