UNC’s Brown has issues with NCAA over eligibility of transfer wide receiver

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina coach Mack Brown is calling out the NCAA for dragging its heels on the case of transfer wide receiver Devontez Walker, who has not yet been ruled eligible. Walker, the Tar Heels’ presumed No. 1 receiver, transferred from Kent State, where he played two seasons after a year at North Carolina Central. NCAA rules generally allow players to transfer freely once. Brown said Walker enrolled at UNC in January, just days before the NCAA revised rules to limit waivers for two-time transfers for evaluation on a case-by-case basis. The NCAA denied the waiver for Walker to play immediately and UNC appealed. The Tar Heels open the season against South Carolina on Saturday night.
