Report: Sparkman To Transfer

Sophomore linebacker Fred Sparkman told the <i>Durham Herald-Sun</i> that he will not be returning to the team and will transfer. Sparkman was one of three Tar Heels suspended in October after being charged with marijuana possession.

"I'm not coming back," Sparkman said Wednesday from his home in Columbia, Tenn.

Sparkman said he was told shortly after Christmas that he would not be allowed to return to the UNC program. Sparkman said Corey Holliday, an assistant athletics director who works with the football team, gave him the news.

When asked if transferring was what he wanted, he said: "Not really, but it's what happened."
