For North Carolina, Dazz Newsome made sure it was a good day on the personnel front.
On his personal Twitter account Monday afternoon, Newsome announced that he will be returning for his senior season. “Let’s rock em one more time,” the wide receiver’s short missive read.
Newsome will be entering his final season of eligibility. He also has a redshirt that he hasn’t used.

This past season, Newsome led the Tar Heels in receptions with 72. His 1,018 yards and 10 receiving touchdowns were second on the team.
In the Military Bowl beating of Temple, Newsome caught eight passes for 71 yards and two very acrobatic, athletic touchdowns.
His production has increased each of his three seasons in Chapel Hill. He caught 18 passes for 227 yards as a true freshman in 2017. The following season, it was 44 catches for 506 yards and two touchdowns.
With Newsome’s announcement, it’s expected that all four of the Tar Heels’ top receivers in 2019 will be returning for the 2020 season.
