Alton Leaves Team

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- Redshirt freshman defensive tackle Quinton Alton has left the football team and plans to transfer, a UNC official confirmed on Friday.

The Memphis, Tenn. native redshirted the 2010 season and was listed as third on the depth chart at his position for the 2011 spring season.

Alton signed with UNC in 2010 out of Hillcrest High School as an unheralded recruit, having played just a single season of football.
