Shortly before National Signing Day this past February, it was reported that Marquise Williams was no longer enrolled at North Carolina. A couple of months later? That’s no longer the case.
UNC confirmed Friday that the quarterback is again enrolled at the school and is attending classes. Academics prevented Williams from enrolling for the spring semester, which kept the player from participating in spring practice.
Last season, the former four-star recruit served as the primary backup to starter Bryn Renner, who returns to the Tar Heels this fall for his senior season.
Mitch Trubisky exited spring as the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart as a true freshman. Trubisky was an early enrollee after signing on as a member of the Tar Heels’ 2013 recruiting class.
As a redshirt freshman last season, Williams accounted for 127 yards passing and 186 yards rushing. He scored four total touchdowns.
