North Carolina’s Mack Brown unleashes on NCAA after Tez Walker ruled ineligible for the season

The NCAA made its long awaited ruling on North Carolina Tar Heels wide receiver Devontez “Tez” Walker’s eligibility. In August, the governing body of student athletics denied Walker’s waiver to play immediately as a two-time transfer.

North Carolina then filed an appeal, which was also denied. The case then went to a committee comprised of representative from universities at the Division I level. The committee was tasked with making a decision and then making a presentation to the NCAA.

Walker did not play in the Tar Heels season opener against South Carolina as he awaited a ruling on his eligibility. On Thursday, the redshirt junior learned that he was declared ineligible for the entire 2023.

After sitting out this season, Walker will be eligible to play for Tar Heels beginning in 2024.

Fox News Digital contacted the NCAA to request more information surrounding its decision to deny Walker’s eligibility. The NCAA did not respond to the request as of Friday morning.
