CBS Sports moves Drake Maye up in quarterback rankings




 

If there's been one constant positive for the UNC football program this season it's been the play of quarterback Drake Maye.

The redshirt freshman won the starting job this offseason and has been fantastic for the Tar Heels so far. Maye has thrown just one interception while tossing 16 touchdowns and 1,231 passing yards. He's been the best player on UNC's team this season and it hasn't been close.

But what's the national perspective on Maye going into Week 5 against Virginia Tech?

CBS Sports' Tom Fornelli released his updated quarterback rankings after four weeks of play, and sitting in the top 3 is…..Drake Maye:

Maye moved up one spot from last week's ranking of No. 4 and trails just C.J. Stroud and Bryce Young, two Heisman candidates, in the rankings.

Let's see if Maye can continue his hot play and climb the rankings even more.
