Graduate transfer Stanton Truitt has announced he will finish his college football career at North Carolina, a move that will help the Tar Heels address significant personnel losses in both the passing and running game. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound Atlanta native played both running back and wide receiver at Auburn and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining. Because he has received his undergraduate degree, he will be allowed to play right away for UNC. Although he battled injuries throughout his career with the Tigers, limiting him to just 215 rushing yards and 126 yards on 10 catches, Truitt showed his potential when thrust into a starting role against Arkansas last season. He scored touchdowns on runs of 20 and 31 yards while adding a third score on a 45-yard reception to lead Auburn to a 56-3 rout of the Razorbacks. “No better feeling than God giving you another opportunity at something you love,” I can’t wait to be part of something special,” Truitt said in a statement posted on his Twitter account. “I can’t wait to be a part of something special athletically and also academically.” Truitt could be an important addition to an offense looking to replace its top three receivers and leading rushers Elijah Hood and T.J. Logan.
