What are the Tar Heels getting in transfer RB Antonio Williams?

At 5’11 210, picture Ohio State transfer running back Antonio Williams as a power back in Larry Fedora’s system— he doesn’t have the size of Elijah Hood or the top-end speed of T.J. Logan or the wiggle of Giovani Bernard. What made Williams an elite recruit was his balance— in that he does everything well and has the strength to keep his legs churning. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Football Working to Finish in 2018

A common refrain during UNC’s spring football season was that despite a ridiculous number of injuries last season, the Tar Heels were in position to win a majority of their games in the second half. The offseason emphasis has been on finishing in every regard, whether it’s completing sets in the weight room or making sure the ball carrier is down during a tackle. (Inside Carolina)

Mitch Trubisky is exuding confidence and focus in Year 2

The smile cannot be wiped off Mitch Trubisky's face. Maybe it is because he has a better grasp of life in the NFL as he enters Year 2 of his career. Or maybe it is because he has an offensive mind in place at head coach who can both nurture him and push him to get better. "It feels a lot different," Trubisky said at his press conference.

Healthy after knee surgery, LB Andre Smith expected to be drafted

UNC linebacker Andre Smith played well last year...until he couldn’t play. Smith, a middle linebacker for the Tar Heels, had 21 tackles in two games but sustained a season-ending meniscus tear in his left knee that required surgery. But Smith was undeterred and declared for the draft anyway. Analyst Dane Brugler ranks Smith as the No. 12 linebacker available. (Florida Times-Union)

Tight End Can Still Be A Position Of Strength For UNC

Without Brandon Fritts, tight end is at least still a position that has talent and is deep for UNC. But, it’s not all that experienced. Prior to his injury, Fritts spoke about the group. “We’ve got a lot of good players; everybody can play, honestly,” he said. “So it’s a lot of fun, we’re a tight group and we enjoy coming out here every day competing with one another.” (Tar Heel Illustrated)

UNC Offensive Line Still Hampered by Injuries

Chris Kapilovic’s offseason challenge was daunting enough with a full slate of inexperienced bodies along his offensive line. With two projected starters sidelined due to injury, spring ball became a proving ground for freshmen, walk-ons and other backups battling for playing time next fall. UNC only returns 19 starts along the offensive line, the fewest in the ACC. (Inside Carolina)

Larry Fedora Wraps Up UNC's Spring Football Practice

Larry Fedora: "We finished up spring on Monday, had a good spring, we got a lot of reps with a lot of young guys and we got a lot of people a lot of work. It was a very productive spring.
