UNC Football: Top 10 Tar Heels Quarterbacks All-Time

7 of 11

No. 5 – Marquise Williams, UNC (2012-15)

Marquise Williams was an exciting player to watch during his UNC career. In the first part of  his college career, he was the second-string quarterback behind Bryn Renner.

He has sixth-highest QBR in a season (150.2 in 2015), the fifth-highest career QBR (141.84), fourth-highest career completion percentage (61.3%) and he ranks fifth in career passing yards (7,965).

Williams ranks third in passing touchdowns (61), has the fourth-most completions in a season (271 in 2014), ranks fourth in career completions (625), the fourth-most touchdowns in a season (24 in 2015), the sixth-most passing touchdowns in a season (21 in 2014), ranks fourth in career passing yards (7,965 yards) and ranks fifth and sixth in most passing yards in a season (3,072 yards in 2015; 3,068 yards in 2014).

Williams holds the record for the most passing yards in a single game.

During the 2014 season, Williams passed for 494 yards against the Duke Blue Devils en route to a 66-31 victory. Williams set this record at the beginning of the second half against Duke.

Some people labeled Williams as a running back playing the quarterback position. After looking at his statistics, it should be noted that he was a heck of a quarterback who had the skills of a running back.

Williams was a second-team All-ACC quarterback in 2015. Williams led the North Carolina Tar Heels to the 2015 ACC Football Championship where they lost to the Clemson Tigers 45-37.

He was the first UNC quarterback to be first-team or second-team All-ACC since Chris Keldorf in 1996.
