CHAPEL HILL – Devon Ramsay, a junior fullback from Red Bank, N.J., will not participate in today's game against Clemson due to information gathered this week as part of the on-going NCAA investigation into possible agent extra benefits and academic misconduct.
"It is unfortunate that we have to hold out an additional student-athlete, but as we have stated, we are still in the process of gathering information related to the investigation," says Director of Athletics Dick Baddour. "Yesterday (Friday), we learned information that requires us to hold him out of competition.
"I caution against making judgments as it will take time to process Devon's situation, just as it has for other student-athletes."
Additionally, Jonathan Smith, a senior safety from Durham, will not play in 2010. Smith, who was held out of the first four games as part of the academic investigation, will have one season of athletic eligibility remaining.
