UNC football signee arrested on larceny charge

Posted June 6, 2014

#9 Avery Edwards of Ravenscroft just misses the catch.  Ravenscroft crushes Pinke Lake with a 57-8 Win in Week 5 of High School Football.

North Carolina football signee Avery Edwards was arrested for felony larceny Thursday by Wake County Deputies.

Edwards' arrest is part of an ongoing investigation where jewelry, mostly watches, were stolen from a residence in May.

The 18-year-old tight end is a three star prospect out of Ravenscroft High School and a part of the Tar Heels 2014 incoming class.

At 6-5, 230 pounds Edwards caught 45 passes for 629 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior.

    SMH at this article. Promising future and scholarship down the drain if he's guilty of the charges. Don't believe the State of North Carolina offers any Carolina blue color schemes
    with prison attire.

    WOW - some people are so ignorant. This kid hasn't even been to UNC yet and his conduct should not reflect on UNC in any way. It was obviously hios bad choices. I am sure he will not be attending now.

    Coming from a prep school like Ravenscroft, this kid had to do something to up his street cred with his new tarhole teammates. Smart kid.

    but he didn't -made the right choice probably will need a crooked lawyer and unc has plenty of them.

    wasn't the 5 star recruit that actually turned out to be only 3 stars- he was just trying to steal 2 more stars to make his coach happy.
