Kendrick Williams Out For The Season

UNC Senior cornerback Kendric Williams (#37) is done for the year, after he tore his ACL in the first quarter against Virginia Tech. It’s a shame to see anyone get injured like that, but particularly For Williams. He had spent three years as a walk-on to the team, and he not only became a scholarship player for the 2007 season, but he a starting spot at defensive back. Through 5 games, he was tied for fifth on the team with 15 solo tackles. I hope that the NCAA gives Kendric a fifth year of eligibility, so that he has the chance to play a full, healthy season next year. I wish him the best of luck in his recovery and efforts to return in 2008.

For the Tar Heels, Williams’ absence will put even more strain on a defense who have already lost LB Chase Rice for the season and are still searching for consistency.
