Harrelson, Boston switch to corner to fill UNC need on defense

When looking for a weakness in the 2011 Tar Heel defense, thoughts drift immediately to the secondary. Safeties Matt Merletti and Jonathan Smith are fifth-year seniors, but they have combined for four career starts. As for the cornerbacks, Tre Boston was a free safety and Todd Harrelson a wide receiver until they switched positions two weeks ago, and the other players on the two-deep chart are freshmen Tim Scott and Alex Dixon.
