University of Georgia running back Todd Gurley has been suspended indefinitely, the school said in a statement on Thursday.

Gurley, a graduate of Tarboro High School, is being investigated for alleged NCAA violations, the school said.

In the short statement posted on the school's athletic website, head coach Mark Richt said, "I'm obviously very disappointed ... The important thing for our team is to turn all our attention toward preparation for Missouri."

Gurley was a member of Tarboro's Class of 2012. In 2011, he led the Vikings to the 2-A state championship, earning North Carolina Associated Press Player of the Year honors. ESPN ranked him a four-star prospect coming out of high school.

In the state championship game, Gurley rushed for 242 yards and four touchdowns.

In Gurley's first two years as a college football player he carried the ball 387 times for 2,374 yards and 27 touchdowns. He also caught 53 passes for 558 yards and five touchdowns.

East Wake High School girls basketball player Kianna Wynn has verbally committed to Queens University, according to her high school coach, Toni Vick-Dupree.

"Kianna is a very talented and humble young lady," Vick-Dupree said. "She is the type of player that you know will give 100 percent every time she gets on the floor."

Wynn stands at 5-foot-9. The senior guard also plays volleyball for the Warriors.

Last season, Wynn averaged 13.5 points, 7 rebounds, and 1.1 steals per game. East Wake compiled a 20-4 overall record last season, including a 12-2 record in the Greater Neuse River 4-A Conference.

"[Wynn] is a leader by example and a very hard worker. She is not a verbal person, but the way she plays speaks for her," said Vick-Dupree. "I believe Queens University is a great fit for her. I really look forward to seeing what she can and will accomplish this season."

East Wake will participate in the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational Dec. 26-30.
