Howard TerryJan 31, 2018

A player for the UNC-Chapel Hill men's basketball player is now off the team.

The school issued a news release Tuesday, saying the suspension means he is "not now eligible to participate" in any university activities.

A 6-foot-3 freshman from West Columbia, S.C., Felton has played in all 22 games this season for UNC.

There been no word on the reason for the suspension.

According to UNC, Jalek Felton is not now eligible to participate in university activities: "Due to federal privacy laws, that is the extent to which the University can comment".

Toward the end of December, the freshman scored 12 points against Ohio State in just 12 minutes, appearing to turn a corner, but he only played 5 minutes in the next game. His playing time has diminished since the start of the conference schedule as he has found minutes hard to come by behind backcourt starters Joel Berry and Kenny Williams. He is the nephew of 2005 national champion Raymond Felton.
