North Carolina Tar Heels quarterback Marquise Williams and wideout Quinshad Davis have both been medically cleared to participate in fall practice. Head football coach Larry Fedora reported the development, which was reported by Kevin McGuire of NBC Sports’ College Football Talk.
Williams was held out of spring practice as he recovered from a hip injury, and his return could not be timed better. He is about to enter his senior season and threw for 3,068 yards last season with a TD:INT ratio of 21:9. Williams also did great work with his legs, rushing for 788 yards and 13 scores. If his hip is at 100 percent, he could be primed for an even better season.
And then there’s Davis, also entering his senior season. He had 41 receptions for 470 yards and six touchdowns last season, good enough to be UNC’s third-leading receiver. Combined with juniors Ryan Switzer and Mack Hollins, not to mention a healthy Williams, Davis should have another excellent season in Chapel Hill.
UNC opens the season against South Carolina on September 3, in a game set to be played at Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium.
