(AP) KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin says the NCAA is investigating an eligibility issue with freshman tailback Bryce Brown.
Kiffin said Tuesday afternoon that the investigation has nothing to do with Brown's recruitment by Tennessee or any other school.
Coach would not say specifically what the NCAA was investigating, but said that Brown had good grades in high school and during the summer session at Tennessee.
Brown, from Wichita, Kan., was considered a top high school prospect in 2009. He has seen significant playing time with the Volunteer's first team offense during fall practice.
