Thirteen North Carolina football players will miss games this upcoming season after the university self-reported a secondary violation in July when they discovered players were selling shoes, such as Nike Jordans, according to a school announcement on Monday (h/t The All-American).
Tar Heels’ offensive lineman Brian Anderson, defensive end Malik Carney, wide receiver Beau Corrales, defensive end Tomon Fox, defensive end Tyrone Hopper, offensive lineman Quiron Johnson, linebacker Malik Robinson, quarterback Chazz Surratt and offensive lineman Jordan Tucker have all been suspended four games, per the official statement.
Additional, defensive backs Tre Shaw and Greg Ross were banned two games apiece, quarterback Jack Davidson and offensive lineman Jonah Melton will miss one game.
“I am certainly upset by our players’ actions and how their choices reflect on them, our program and the University,” head coach Larry Fedora said. “These young men knew the rules and are being held responsible for the poor choices they have made. Accountability is an important core principle in this program. We will learn from this and aim to do better in the future.”
