"There is nothing we've heard that justifies UNC's actions against Jalek Felton," said Kerry Sutton, attorney for the first-year guard who withdrew from the University Thursday.
She said Felton had faith in UNC when others didn't, presumably referring to the impacts of the NCAA's investigation into the University that closed in October.
"I spoke with Roy Williams today and he obviously feels the pain of Jalek's crushed dream to play at UNC," Sutton said. "Jalek will land on his feet, but our battle here is far from over."
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.
