Vols reviewing another potential minor violation

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee is looking into whether it committed another NCAA recruiting violation by allowing media to be present during a meeting between coach Lane Kiffin and recruits.

A segment of ESPN's "Outside the Lines," which aired Sunday, showed Kiffin in his office with two people identified by the network as recruits.

The NCAA's recruiting rules say, "A member institution shall not permit a media entity to be present during any recruiting contact made by an institution's coaching staff member."

Tennessee spokeswoman Tiffany Carpenter declined further comment.

Tennessee has reported at least four minor recruiting violations since Kiffin was introduced as coach Dec. 1. Athletic director Mike Hamilton has said the number isn't any more than the school usually reports.
