The UNC Tar Heels have their starting quarterback.
UNC plays Florida A&M this upcoming Saturday night to get the 2022 season underway.
Coming out of high school, Maye was a four star recruit and the 56th-ranked recruit in the class of 2021 on 247Sports.
Originally, Maye was committed to play for Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa but de-committed back in March 2020.
He then landed in Chapel Hill to play for Mack Brown.
Last season, the redshirt freshman threw for 89 yards on 7/10 passing with one touchdown. He also rushed for 62 yards on six carries. That’s a very impressive average of 10.3 yards per carry.
Now, Drake Maye will get a lot more reps as the starting quarterback of the UNC Tar Heels. Expectations are high, and fans will get their first look at him as QB1 Saturday night.
