Harrelson to Transfer

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- Todd Harrelson was not in attendance for North Carolina's game at NC State earlier this month, and on Monday head coach Everett Withers confirmed that the junior cornerback will transfer.

"Todd Harrelson isn't even on our football team anymore," Withers said. "Todd's going to transfer. He decided he wanted to transfer at the end of the semester."

The 6-2, 195-pound Chesapeake, Va. native was suspended for two games in September for a violation of team rules.

Harrelson, who was moved to cornerback during preseason camp, appeared in seven games and recorded three tackles and one pass break-up. He also returned seven punts for a 7.8-yard average.

Harrelson was an all-state wide receiver and cornerback at Oscar Smith High School and recorded three catches during his first two seasons at UNC -- the biggest being a pivotal 28-yard reception in the final minute of regulation against Tennessee in the 2010 Music City Bowl. He also returned 11 kickoffs his sophomore season (averaging 23.0 yards per return).
