 Tomari Fox, North Carolina, Player News

  North Carolina won't have defensive end Tomari Fox this season after he lost an NCAA appeal of his punishment for consuming a banned substance. Coach Mack Brown announced Tuesday that Fox is ineligible. The player drank a non-approved over-the-counter pre-workout beverage last year in what Brown described as an inadvertent mistake. "He walked immediately to his locker and pulled what he was drinking out and said, "Coach, I bought this over at the grocery store," Brown said. "And I didn't think there was anything wrong with it. ... I think it's unfair for him. "Obviously he drank something he shouldn't have, but he wasn't trying to beat the system or he sure wouldn't have had it in his locker." Fox started all 12 games in 2020 and played in 12 games last season, starting two. He has had 5.5 sacks over the last two seasons. Fox, who was held out of the Duke's Mayo Bowl as a precaution after the school learned of the violation, is allowed to practice and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining. - AP College Football

  Calling North Carolina's Tomari Fox a positionless player is a bit of a misnomer. He actually can play every position on the defensive line for the Tar Heels and opponents trying to scout him just may see that during the course of the same game. Fox, a 6-foot-1, 280-pound sophomore, is both physical enough to battle in the interior of the line and quick enough to be on the outside and rush the passer at defensive end. If the package calls for it, he can even drop back off the line in pass coverage, although the Heels won't have him backpedaling on too many occasions. "I'm not sure the best player on defense isn't Tomari Fox," UNC defensive coordinator Jay Bateman told reporters on Wednesday's Zoom call. "We'll move him around. We don't want people to really know where he is."

Fox is expecting to take a big leap in his second year after appearing in 12 games as a freshman. Bateman said Fox will primarily line up at defensive tackle and his usage could be compared to that of Jason Strowbridge last season. Strowbridge, who was the Miami Dolphins' fifth-round pick in April, moved around on the line so opponents wouldn't automatically know which way to steer their blocking. "Part of the deal with Jason last year was they couldn't always know where he was," Bateman said. "It was like, 'if he's lined up in the boundary, let's block that way,'" Bateman said. "Tomari is gonna be in a very similar role when we are in some of those packages for sure." - Raleigh News Observer
