Jay Wooten split FG kicking duties with Casey Barth last season but handled all of the kickoffs. While no reason was given for the transfer nor has UNC had anything official to say about it I am going to wildly speculate that Wooten had no interest in a similar arrangement next season or he was a clear #2 behind Barth heading into August. The oddity of the news is it comes fairly late in the game. Most transfers happen right after the academic year ends, especially in football. Practice starts in one month, which really does not matter to a transfer since he will sit a season anyway.
I am sure this news will spawn more "waiver wire" talk from our ABC friends.
