Chapel Hill, NC - – University of North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora has suspended sophomore Des Lawrence, redshirt freshman Donnie Miles, freshman M.J. Stewart and sophomore Brian Walker for Saturday’s game against Liberty. The one-game suspension stems from a violation of team policy.

“We hold our players accountable for their actions at all times,” said hetad coach Fedora. “These players did not meet the high expectations we have for them as members of our program and have been disciplined accordingly. They will not play on Saturday or be on the sideline with their teammates.”

On Tuesday, a Yahoo Sports report was published claiming there was a hazing incident that occurred at the team’s hotel, Aloft, during fall camp. The article stated that redshirt walk-on freshman Jackson Boyer was involved in an altercation with multiple teammates and left with a concussion.

The 6-foot-3 Boyer was a two-time all-conference wide receiver at East Chapel Hill High School. He was not listed on the seven-deep depth chart at wide receiver for the season opener against Liberty this Saturday.

Lawrence and Walker were each listed as starters at cornerback on this week’s UNC depth chart released Monday. Stewart was listed as a second string corner and Miles as a third stringer at Ram.
