Shortly after getting a look at some Jordan Brand PE models made for the University of North Carolina, we now learn that 13 college football players from the school have been suspended for selling their exclusive sneakers.
The group of players were caught selling their school-issued, special-edition Nike and Air Jordan shoes, which violate NCAA regulations. Suspensions will be served in a staggered manner as many of the players hold the same position, with each expected to be suspended at least one game. No word yet on which shoes were being sold, but it is important to note that star quarterback Chazz Surratt is involved in the situation.
Catch a statement from Coach Larry Fedora below and stay tuned for more information as the story develops.
“I am certainly upset by our players’ actions and how their choices reflect on them, our program and the University. These young men knew the rules and are being held responsible for the poor choices they have made. Accountability is an important core principle in this program. We will learn from this and aim to do better in the future.”
