This week 247 Sports broke the news: UNC’s Myles Wolfolk is transferring to Bowie State University.

For his career at UNC, he posted 61 tackles and five interceptions, posting five tackles in North Carolina’s season-opening win over Syracuse. He was the Tar Heels’ top-graded defensive player, per PFF College, against the Orange. However, North Carolina ruled Wolfolk academically ineligible on Sept. 17. The fifth-year senior graduated in December 2019 with degrees in sociology and communications.

They (his teammates) we’re disappointed that Myles will not continue to be with us, but he does have his degree. He did so many great things for us; We’re proud of him and happy for him. You’ll be missing the leadership and veteran knowledge that he had; Myles was a spokesperson for the team. He was very vocal during practice.”

Wolfolk is a Maryland native according to HBCU Gameday, hailing from Largo. That’s in Prince George’s County, home of Bowie State. Woolfork played his college ball at Henry A. Wise, HS. He helped lead Wise to an undefeated 14-0 season and a victory in the MAA Class 4A Championship as a senior in 2015. A total of five players from Wise helped Bowie State win its second-consecutive CIAA title in 2018.
