Running Back Ty'Son Williams could play in 2015

UNC has plenty of depth at running back heading into the 2015 season, so one would assume that redshirting true freshman early enrollee Ty'Son Williams would be a luxury the Tar Heels coaches could afford. While on paper, that certainly is the case, it may not be that easy. During last Saturday's spring scrimmage in Charlotte, Williams showed that he's physically ready to carry the football.

Ranking the ACC's Football Coaching Jobs in 2015

6: North Carolina - As far as location, recruiting base, stadium, facilities and brand power, UNC is on par with most conference foes.

Confidence Growing For UNC Football In Queen City

UNC's new-look defense still a work in progress
