Heel Tough Blog: Tar Heels Lose Third Year Safety to Transfer Portal

Charles LeClaire- USA Today Sports

With the majority of focus on campus around the basketball team’s run in March and a week off for spring break for the football program, the news cycles around Tar Heel football have been relatively quiet. On Tuesday, the news began churning again with the news that the Tar Heels were losing a defensive back to the transfer portal following his participation in the first could of weeks of spring camp.

As first reported by Tar Heel Illustrated, sophomore safety Cameron Roseman-Sinclair has entered the transfer portal as of this morning after two seasons in Chapel Hill. He finishes his Tar Heel career with seven total tackles and an interception, seeing the most extensive action of his career as a major part of the special teams unit this past season. He will have four years of eligibility remaining wherever he ends up.

The Tar Heels are still in good shape in the defensive backfield, especially with the emergence a new name on the back end. Ja’Qurious Conley, Cam’Ron Kelly, Don Chapman and Giovanni Biggers are all expected to return after being playing major reps a year ago and are expected to be major contributors again this season based on what Mack Brown has said this spring. The emergence of Dontavius Nash this spring may have been the final straw, though, as it appeared from the beginning of spring camp that Nash had passed him on the depth chart and he has taken that and run with it, earning rave reviews in the first two weeks camp. The one concern with the move here might be the overall depth that has already been tested in the spring with the injury issues. Still, as long as the majority of the group can stay healthy, this should be that much of a concern.
