RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — One of two ex-University of North Carolina athletes suing the school and NCAA says the goal is to ensure college athletes receive a quality education.

In a statement posted Tuesday on Twitter, Devon Ramsay says UNC’s academic fraud scandal is part of “a national problem.” He says athletes must “receive legitimate classes that are worthy of their university,” particularly with so few reaching the professional ranks. Ramsay attended UNC from 2007-12 during an injury-plagued football career. He lost most of a season to a later-overturned NCAA charge of academic misconduct.

Last week’s lawsuit by Ramsay and former women’s basketball player Rashanda McCants seeks class-action status. Citing fraud at UNC and elsewhere, it accuses the NCAA of not doing enough to promote academic integrity in college sports.
