CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Defensive tackle Brandon Willis has decided to transfer from North Carolina for the second time in as many years and cornerback Mywan Jackson has gone home to Florida for personal reasons, according to a school official.

“Mywan is working through some personal issues right now with his family and he felt it was in his best interest to stay in Florida until he decides where to continue his education,” said Withers.

“He indicated he would like to attend a school closer to his home and we support his decision. I wish him nothing but the best.”

Jackson played in 18 games during his two seasons in Chapel Hill and made five starts in 2010. He had 20 tackles and broke up three passes a year ago.

Willis attended classes at UNC in the 2010 spring semester and two sessions of summer school. He then transferred to UCLA two weeks into Carolina's fall training camp on Aug. 19.  He sat out the 2010 season at UCLA due to NCAA transfer rules. He then transferred back to Carolina this May and attended the second session of summer school in June.
