UNC Early Enrollees Have Leg Up

The enrolled group of 2017 freshmen made their debut in uniform on Saturday.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Right now, eight men on the North Carolina football team should be preparing for graduation, senior prom and saying final goodbyes to their hometown friends. 

Instead, they were capping off a productive spring season by playing in Saturday's intrasquad Spring Game scrimmage.

Head coach Larry Fedora says their sacrifices will pay off come fall camp.

"When the rest of their class gets here in June," Fedora says. "I mean, they'll be way ahead of them."
