Where Drake Maye ranks among all quarterbacks in college football




 

The starting quarterback battle between Drake Maye and Jacolby Criswell continues on this August as Week 0 approaches for the UNC football program.

While UNC has yet to name a starter and Mack Brown isn't revealing too much on who the leader is, one publication believes Maye will be the starter and is the better of the two quarterbacks.

Athlon Sports released their annual list ranking 131 quarterbacks in college football, one per team, and they have Maye ranked in the Top 100. But it's not a very high ranking as Maye checked in at No. 79 as the publication had this to say about the quarterback:

Maye was recently named a redshirt freshman to watch here in 2022 by 247Sports and he very well could prove Athlon Sports wrong. But the questions about lack of weapons on the offense and a shaky offensive line are valid.

It's now up to Maye to prove Athlon Sports and the doubters wrong.
