Per Charlotte Observer.

He was a VHT senior at Mallard Creek HS. A prized recruit many schools wanted.

It has to be grades. Lets be honest here, if you're an athlete at Carolina right now your held to an unrealistic standard.

All I'm saying is you have to be one of two things if you're a big time athlete and you flunk out of a university

1. Extremely, extremely dumb
2. You don't care

yeah he isn't technically off the football team just not attending school there. It's weird but whatever. I'm just ready to start watching Mitch Trubisky tear up the ACC in 2014

Will be interesting to see where he ends up.

If its not a grades issue, it will be at a major university. If it is grades, I imagine you'll see a lower tier conference team take a chance on him while the big time programs back away.

Hawatha Bell 2.0

great local player who actually stayed in the state to play FB only to squander it away

I never saw him as a starter at UNC anyways. Was very excited about him and I think he has tremendous talent. Just seemed to be a weird fit at UNC. James Summers seems to be a clone of him. But I think After Renner leaves we'll see Kanler Coker and Mitch Trubisky battle it out for the starting QB

I liked Marquise (great athlete) but he wasn't a fluid passer and probably never would have become one. Renner, Trubisky, and Koker seems like a good group of quarterback's though.

Not sure exactly what's going on, but Fedora said he's still part of the football team and is expected to re enroll in the Summer. A very weird situation...


[quote]andrewcarter: #UNC coach Larry Fedora says Williams is "still a member of this football team." Anticipates he'll re-enroll in summer.[/quote]

I am very late to this thread, but LOL at the thought that UNC gives a damn about the student aspect of the student-athlete. UNC continues to slide "student"-athletes through in ways that most schools wouldn't even dream of.

Also, nice use of the word "your."

Like I said dude if your a student athlete at Carolina and especially if your a football player, your held to unrealistic standards. Your going to be under the microscope so closely your going to be walking a tight rope all semester.

This thread is OLD NEWS and Coach Fedora said he's still apart of the team and is eligible to play next season.

It's funny though everyone is critical of him and assumes its grades. It could be personal. I was a freshman in college once and living in the dorms 4 hours away from you're family and you're friends - u can get homesick.
