North Carolina Tar Heels
Davontez Walker, Wide Receiver: Kent State transfer Davontez Walker was the other part of the Golden Flashes’ dynamic duo alongside Dante Cephas. Walker led Kent State in receptions and yards last season. He will be a welcomed addition to the Tar Heels roster, with Josh Downs headed to the NFL and Antoine Green graduating.
Walker was an All-MAC performer, leading the conference in yards and setting a program record with 11 touchdown receptions, leading the MAC.
Chris Culliver, Wide Receiver: Top 150 high school prospect Chris Culliver is the highest-rated prospect the Tar Heels signed this season. Culliver is going to compete for snaps this fall. He is a hefty (6-foot-3 and 174 pounds) physical receiver who is a good athlete with a nose for the football.
Culliver is a multi-sport athlete, playing basketball and running track in high school. His basketball background is evident with his ability to put his body between the defender and the football.
Alijah Huzzie, Defensive Back: Defensive backs coach Jason Jones was looking for some new blood in the defensive back room, and he found some. One defensive back he found was East Tennessee State transfer Aljiah Huzzie. The Georgia native was an FCS Freshman All-American for the Buccaneers and joined a defensive backfield full of new faces.
Huzzie joins the Tar Heels after interest from Coastal Carolina, Colorado, and Appalachian State. Virginia Tech transfer Armani Chapman and Georgia State transfer Antavious Lane join Huzzie in the Tar Heels’ new-look defensive backfield.
