First-year guard Jalek Felton is withdrawing from the University of North Carolina, according to a tweet Thursday from his attorney.
Kerry Sutton, Felton's attorney, issued a statement via Twitter, which included a quotation and a photograph of Felton with head coach Roy Williams.
"Playing at @UNC_Basketball was a life-long dream come true," Felton said, according to Sutton's tweet. "It's time for a new dream."
The tweet comes a little more than a month after Felton was suspended from the University.
Sutton, who was hired to represent Felton in January, primarily works on Title IX and ethics issues and also represented UNC football player Allen Artis in 2017.
Felton, a five-star recruit and the No. 1 player out of South Carolina according to ESPN, averaged 9.7 minutes a game, and scored 2.9 points per game in the 22 games he played at North Carolina.
Felton is the nephew of 2005 national champion Raymond Felton.
Due to federal privacy laws, the North Carolina men's basketball team announced it could not comment on Felton's suspension in a January press release.
