North Carolina sophomore QB Marquise Williams completed 19 of 33 attempts for 171 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions in Saturday's Belk Bowl win against Cincinnati.
North Carolina's season was thought to be over when Bryn Renner was ruled out, but Williams helped guide the team to a 6-1 finish. He completed passes to seven different receivers in Saturday's game, though future NFL tight end hauled in a team-high seven receptions. Williams is expected to retain the starting quarterback gig for an up-and-coming program in 2014, one that is escaping the shadows of NCAA sanctions. "We are going in the right direction," coach Larry Fedora said. "There is a tremendous positive buzz about the Tar Heels in the state of North Carolina." Sun, Dec 29, 2013 01:47:00 PM

Redshirt freshman QB Marquise Williams has re-enrolled at UNC.

Williams had reportedly left the school after signing day, a surprising move at the time. However, it has now apparent that Williams did not qualify academically for the spring semester, but those off-field issues appear to have been cleared. Mitch Trubisky exited spring as the No. 2 quarterback on the roster as a true freshman, but Williams held that spot last year.

UNC backup redshirt freshman QB Marquise Williams is no longer enrolled at the school.

Behind junior Bryn Renner, Williams compiled 186 rushing yards and 127 yards through the air for four total scores while seeing action in nine games. Many thought he may have a chance to take over after Renner's exit following the 2013 season, especially in Larry Fedora's fast paced spread offense.

Quarterback Marquise Williams is finding new coach Larry Fedora’s spread offense much to his liking.

Bryn Renner threw for 3,086 yards and 26 touchdowns while ranking 10th nationally in pass efficiency. That was last season and Fedora has let it be known that competition is open at every position. Williams, working mostly with the second team, has impressed with his handling of the spread offense this spring. While Renner had much success last season as a sophomore, new coaches and new schemes often result in starting over. That could ultimately improve advantageous for Williams, who was a redshirt freshman in 2011.
