North Carolina running back Jordon Brown has entered the transfer portal, according to an Inside Carolina report published Friday morning.
According to sources who spoke with Inside Carolina, the rising senior and Durham N.C., native will become the second Tar Heel to enter the transfer portal after cornerback K.J. Sails entered two weeks ago.
After starting all 12 games as a sophomore in 2017 and leading UNC in rushing yards (613) and rushing for four touchdowns, Brown's role diminished as a junior in a crowded backfield.
Sophomore Michael Carter and junior transfer Antonio Williams were the team's primary options out of the backfield and they totaled 597 and 504 yards, respectively. By the end of the year first-year Javonte Williams was also receiving quality reps, and carried the ball a combined 33 times against Western Carolina and N.C. State.
Brown, meanwhile, carried the ball 81 times for 347 yards and scored three touchdowns.
