Mack Brown releases update on Tez Walker, again

The North Carolina football program received the bad news on Thursday that wide receiver Tez Walker would not be eligible this season after his appeal was denied again. Following that decision, Mack Brown sounded off on the NCAA as did others to criticize the decision.

And the saga may not be over just yet.

On Monday, North Carolina’s Board of Trustees held an emergency meeting to get a legal update on the situation. Nothing appears imminent in terms of legal action but the Board of Trustees are doing their job and looking to provide support for Walker.

As is Brown who commented on the situation Monday night.

“I’ve never been prouder of Board of Trustee members than them saying, ‘Let’s all get together. Let’s figure out what his options are that we can present to him. Let’s make sure we’ve got one voice,'” Brown said via Inside Carolina. “There’s a lot of question marks that from a legal standpoint that we have to look at. He won’t play Saturday. I don’t think he’ll play for the rest of the year. But I don’t know that. I don’t know the legal ramifications. A lot of people are looking into that now.”

It’s a tough loss for the Tar Heels as Walker was projected to be their top receiver in the offense and a big target for Drake Maye.

But now, all the program can do is wait for the next steps.
