Burlington wide receiver Dwight Jones is now officially a Tar Heel. Jones, who had been enrolled and practicing at Valdosta (Ga.) State for the past week, was released by the Division II school and then signed scholarship papers at North Carolina on Friday, after it was determined that his academics were judged under the wrong set of criteria. That leaves him eligible to play Division I football. Transfers usually have to sit out a year, but the NCAA has granted a waiver, meaning Jones can play for North Carolina this season.
