Tar Heels Land LSU Transfer Barrington Edwards

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Former LSU running back Barrington Edwards will join the University of North Carolina football program, Tar Heel head coach John Bunting announced Wednesday. Edwards will sit out the 2004 season according to NCAA regulations and will be able to play as a sophomore in 2005. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.

"We are excited to add a back the caliber of Barrington Edwards," said Bunting. "He already has experienced success at the collegiate level as part of a championship program at LSU. He'll have an opportunity to learn our system this season, and we look forward to seeing him on the field in 2005."

Edwards signed a scholarship agreement Wednesday and is expected to begin practicing with the team on August 24, the first day of classes in Chapel Hill.

Edwards carried the ball 41 times for 169 yards in 2003, good for a 4.1 yards-per-carry average. He also made one reception for the Tigers, who split last year's national title with USC.

A native of Bowie, Md., Edwards was a Super Prep All-America at Bowie High School.
