Report: UNC investigating hazing that led to alleged concussion
Yahoo Sports reported Tuesday that North Carolina has confirmed its investigation into an alleged hazing incident that may have left a player with a concussion.
Yahoo Sports reported Tuesday that North Carolina is investigating an alleged hazing incident involving multiple Tar Heel football players, one that per Yahoo's sources ended with a redshirt freshman player suffering a concussion.
"We are aware of an incident involving members of the UNC football team that took place earlier this month," UNC assistant athletic director for communications Kevin Best said in a statement to Yahoo. "We take this allegation seriously and the university is conducting a thorough review."
Because of the investigation, coach Larry Fedora, his staff and players were not made available to comment. North Carolina has not announced any disciplinary measures connected to the incident as it prepares for Saturday's season opener against Liberty.
According to "multiple sources" cited by Yahoo, walk-on wide receiver Jackson Boyer was the victim of a "group assault" that took place in the team's hotel during fall camp, resulting in an alleged concussion.
Boyer's father acknowledged to Yahoo that his son had been involved in an incident, but declined further comment.
