UNC Releases DB James Pierre

Despite signing with the Tar Heels, the Florida defensive back won't be enrolling at UNC.

James Pierre informed Inside Carolina that North Carolina has released him from his National Letter of Intent. He was denied admissions by UNC.

Pierre, a 6-foot, 166-pound cornerback from Deerfield Beach (Fla.), originally committed to Miami a year ago. However, he switched his pledge to UNC last October.

Despite signing with UNC in February, Pierre never officially visited Chapel Hill.
