Initially, Tinsley will get a shot at tailback for the Tar Heels with fullback and linebacker being fallback positions. Regardless, the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder is willing to put in the effort at whatever position he plays.
"I'm a hard worker," commented Tinsley. "I run hard, I can catch, I'm competitive, and I know I have a lot to work on and willing to work. I love to study film, so I'm a student of the game."
Originally, Tinsley wanted to join Cameron Sexton and Richard Quinn as a spring enrollee. However, that plan didn't come to fruition. He now plans to enroll this summer, most likely second semester.
