Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman speculated that North Carolina four-star 2018 LB Payton Wilson could potentially flip to NC State.

Wilson (6'4/220) just recently took an official visit to the Wolfpack, one which went off like gangbusters. Notre Dame is also hoping to pry him loose from the clutches of HC Larry Fedora. The Hillsborough, North Carolina, native ranks as Rivals' No. 133 overall prospect in the 2018 class. On the field, Wilson offers a fantastic blend of athleticism and versatility.

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.

Nov 3 - 6:58 PM

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.
Oct 28 - 12:15 PM

UNC freshman RB Michael Carter will not play on Saturday against Miami (FL) with an undisclosed injury.

What an absolutely horrific year for UNC in terms of wins and losses, and especially in terms of injuries. No reason was given for Carter not being able to play, hence the undisclosed tag from Larry Fadora and company. The freshman had been one of the very few positive developments for the Tar Heels this year; leading the team in rushing and averaging six yards a carry. Jordon Brown should get the bulk of the carries against the Hurricanes on Saturday.
Oct 26 - 8:05 PM

UNC redshirt sophomore WR Anthony Ratliff-Williams had a 43-yard catch for a touchdown in a 59-7 loss to Virginia Tech on Saturday.

North Carolina just had no shot today against a quality Virginia Tech program. Their only touchdown came on a 43-yard slant to Ratliff-Williams from Chazz Surratt to pull the Tar Heels within 45. The Tar Heels will try to get their first conference win next week against Miami. Best of luck.
Oct 21 - 6:57 PM

UNC senior QB Brandon Harris exited the game against Virginia Tech with an undisclosed injury and will not return.

Harris replaced freshman QB Chazz Surratt after he took a big hit, but then took a big hit of his own and was replaced by Surratt. His availability going forward should be announced sometime next week.
Oct 21 - 6:15 PM

UNC redshirt freshman QB Chazz Surratt was knocked out of Saturday's game against Virginia Tech in the first half with an undisclosed injury.

Surratt was helped off the field after taking a big hit. Shortly thereafter, he was headed for the locker room to undergo further examination. Brandon Harris figures to close out what will be UNC's seventh loss of the nightmare campaign.
