Knoxville, TN - Tennessee will self-report another minor recruiting violation after a comment about a recruit was posted to coach Lane Kiffin's Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Kiffin's profiles on the two social media Web sites Tuesday briefly read: ``I was so excited to hear that J.C. Copeland committed to play for the Vols today!''
Copeland is a junior at Troup County High School in LaGrange, Ga.
Athletic director Mike Hamilton told The Knoxville News Sentinel an assistant posted the comments on the Web sites without consulting the athletic department's compliance officials. Hamilton was unavailable for comment Wednesday morning.
The university also self-reported a secondary violation in February when Kiffin mentioned eventual signee Bryce Brown's name on a radio program.
Secondary violations by schools are common and rarely punished by the NCAA.
