UNC adding Ohio State RB Antonio Williams as transfer

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina will add Ohio State transfer Antonio Williams to its backfield.

The school announced Tuesday that the running back is transferring with two years of eligibility remaining after he sits out this fall due to NCAA rules. He played in 12 games last year for the Buckeyes and 13 for his career, rushing 63 times for 318 yards and three touchdowns during his time there.

Williams was a four-star instate recruit who ran for 7,999 yards at North Stanly. He committed to UNC during high school before ultimately signing with the Buckeyes.
