Vandy WR Cunningham transfers to North Carolina

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina is adding Vanderbilt transfer Jordan Cunningham.

UNC officials said Wednesday night that the wide receiver will sit out this season and will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2016.

Cunningham caught 19 passes for 150 yards in two seasons with Vanderbilt. He took a leave of absence from the Commodores last September for personal reasons, and in May said on Twitter that he was transferring to Cincinnati.

He's from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
