UNC redshirt freshman QB Logan Byrd will transfer.

We assume the Tar Heels' coaching staff didn't take to the former four-star recruit, because all signs Byrd must have gotten this fall pointed towards his eventual exit. UNC started three different quarterbacks during its lost 2017 season; Brandon Harris, Nathan Elliott and Chazz Surratt. Somehow, Byrd was not given his audition, never seeing even one snap. The 6-foot-3, 230-pounder was one of the top pro-style QBs in the country coming out of high school. Meanwhile, Elliott and Surratt will compete for UNC's starting QB job next year.

UNC senior cornerback M.J. Stewart has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

In an atrocious year for North Carolina, Stewart has been one of the very few bright spots. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound cornerback broke up 12 passes, and has six career interceptions to his name. He's been given anywhere between first-and-third round grades, so the Senior Bowl will be big for the senior corner.
Dec 4 - 10:39 PM

UNC redshirt sophomore WR Anthony Ratliff-Williams caught five passes for 131 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 33-21 loss to NC State.

Ratliff-Williams (6'1/205) hauled in a 51-yard touchdown in the first quarter on his way to his best overall performance of the season. The redshirt sophomore has done a respectable job this season, particularly given the injury attrition faced by North Carolina's receiving corp. Ratliff-Williams finishes the campaign having caught 35 passes for 630 yards and six touchdowns.
Nov 25 - 7:57 PM

UNC freshman RB Michael Carter rushed 16 times for 103 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's victory against Western Carolina.

Carter went over the century mark for the second time in four games, and he racked up his eighth rushing touchdown of the season. It has been a tough season in Chapel Hill with the losing and injuries, but head coach Larry Fedora has found key offensive components for the future with Carter and QB Nathan Elliott. The season wraps up Saturday at N.C. State.
Nov 18 - 6:46 PM

UNC redshirt sophomore QB Nathan Elliott completed 18-of-28 passes for 240 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 65-10 win of Western Carolina.

The Catamounts had no answer for Elliott through the air. The QB, who appears to be the long-term answer for head coach Larry Fedora's offense, also gathered 42 yards on 10 totes. It has been a painful season in Chapel Hill this season, literally and figuratively with all of the injuries. But they could cure a lot of ills with a victory against rival North Carolina State in Raleigh next Saturday.

UNC redshirt sophomore QB Nathan Elliott could be the long-term answer at quarterback for the Tar Heels.

"He could be, he could be. Right now, he’s got to be the guy this week, so I really haven’t started thinking long term stuff," Tar Heels HC Larry Fedora said. In a year that has seen North Carolina be as decimated by injuries as any team in the country, UNC fans could use some good news. Elliott provided some last week in their upset win over Pittsburgh. Expect Elliott and fellow signal-caller Chazz Surratt to battle for the job in spring, but based on what we saw last Thursday, don't be surprise if the former takes the job.
Nov 13 - 7:40 PM

UNC redshirt sophomore QB Nathan Elliott completed 20-of-31 passes for 235 yards with two touchdowns in a 34-31 victory over Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Elliott was awful against Miami the previous week, but lots of quarterbacks look awful against Miami. This was a much better effort. He wasn't asked to push the ball down the field much, but he made the right decision, and for the most part, he was accurate when making that decision. His touchdown pass to Anthony Ratliff-Williams proved to be the game winner, and he found Brandon Fritts for an 11-yarder at the end of the first quarter as well. Elliott has earned another start and could have another solid game next week against Western Carolina.
Nov 9 - 11:09 PM

UNC redshirt sophomore WR Anthony Ratliff-Williams threw for a touchdown, scored on a kick return, and caught five passes for 75 yards with a touchdown in a 34-31 victory over Pitt on Thursday.

Well, that's versatility. The game opened with Ratliff-Williams showing off his speed on a 98-yard kick return for a touchdown. A quarter later, the sophomore wideout threw a 36-yard touchdown pass on a trick play to give the Tar Heels a 21-17 lead. The biggest score was the last, a four-yard touchdown that proved to be the winning score with 6:18 left in the game. Ratliff-Williams could have a big year next season if North Carolina can get the quarterback thing figured out. They get Western Carolina next week.
Nov 9 - 11:04 PM

UNC redshirt sophomore QB Nathan Elliott will start Thursday's game against Pitt.

Elliott draws the start in place of Chazz Surratt, who has been nursing an undisclosed injury over the past two weeks. The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder saw extensive work after Surratt left injured against Miami at October's end, but that cameo did not play out particularly well. In the loss, Elliott completed 16-of-39 passes for 173 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions.
Nov 9 - 7:32 PM

UNC redshirt freshman QB Chazz Surratt (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Pitt.

Surratt has yet to be cleared for contact after exiting injured against Miami at the end of October. Nathan Elliott will start in his place versus the Panthers on Thursday. There is no current timetable for Surratt's return to the field.
Nov 9 - 7:29 PM

North Carolina received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 DE Nick Fulwider.

Fulwider (6'6/260) was deciding between UNC and Vanderbilt, who had been making a hard push for the defensive lineman. Arkansas was also in the conversation, but did not factor into his final decision. The Tyrone, Georgia, native was swayed over to the Tar Heels after he took an official visit to the program earlier this autumn. Rivals ranks him as the No. 33 weakside defensive end prospect in the 2018 class.

UNC freshman WR Beau Corrales caught four passes for 64 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 24-19 loss to Miami on Saturday.

One of Corrales' touchdowns saw him catch it a few yards short, swerve to make a defender miss and dive into the endzone for the score. Corrales only had two catches on the season prior to this game.
Oct 28 - 4:31 PM

UNC sophomore RB Jordon Brown rushed for 88 yards on 19 carries as well as four catches for 51 yards in the school's 24-19 loss to Miami.

Brown has displayed receiving prowess, but his production in that area is a bit all or nothing as he has three games of 50-plus receiving yards sprinkled in with six games of less than 10 receiving yards. Also, the 19 carries he saw against Miami were a season high.
Oct 28 - 4:23 PM

UNC redshirt freshman QB Chazz Surratt did not start the second half of Saturday's game against Miami due to an undisclosed injury.

Surratt attempted just three passes before leaving the game. With backup Brandon Harris not dressed out for the contest, the Tar Heels have been rolling with Nathan Elliott. There is a chance that Surratt might reenter the game -- he was throwing the ball with his helmet on on the sidelines coming out of halftime -- but for now this is Elliott's show.
Oct 28 - 2:06 PM

UNC senior QB Brandon Harris (undisclosed) will not play in Saturday's game against Miami.

Harris was knocked out of last week's game against Virginia Tech with an undisclosed injury. With Harris unable to shake the injury this week, Chazz Surratt will draw another start.
