UNC tight end prospect Avery Edwards may never see the field for the Tar Heels after being arrested for alleged felony larceny involving a $53,000 jewelry heist.
According to a report Thursday evening in the Raleigh News and Observer, Edwards has been charged with the theft of five watches and one pair of diamond stud earrings, valued at approximately $53,000.
Tar Heels head coach Larry Fedora called Edwards a good kid who made a mistake.
In a statement Friday, Fedora called Edwards “a good kid who made a terrible mistake.” He said he met with Edwards and his parents following the arrest.
Edwards spurned Florida State, Virginia Tech, and Louisville to commit to UNC.
