UNC's Freshmen Make Most of First Spring

Eight player skipped their final semesters in high school to enroll in January to jumpstart their collegiate careers, and more than a few made their presence felt on Saturday.

Cayson Collins discusses linebackers, improvements on defense

Outside linebacker Cayson Collins has shown flashes of brilliant play over his two years at UNC. Collins has demonstrated a knack for being in the right place at the right time to deliver a big hit or force and recover a fumble. Mostly a reserve in the previous two seasons, the 6-1, 235-pound Charlotte native will be counted to be a big time player in 2016. (Carolina Blue)

Chansky’s Notebook: No. 10’s No. 1!

C’mon, Coach, we know No. 10 is your starting quarterback. Dear Larry Fedora, I know all coaches like to keep the competition for positions open, but Mitch Trubisky is your starter at quarterback by a half mile. Heck, half the fans wanted him to start, or at least play more, last season. Marquise was great, but he had his moments when he needed to be on the sideline standing next to you. (Chapelboro.com)

High expectations surround Mitch Trubisky as he takes reins as UNC quarterback

Marquise Williams completed his eligibility as North Carolina's quarterback in December having established more than 20 school records and led the Tar Heels to an 11-win season.

Mack Hollins impresses at UNC football spring game

A year ago, 6-foot-4, 210-pound rising senior Mack Hollins made it a priority in the offseason to improve his abilities as a possession receiver — to catch passes in traffic and in the middle of the defense. But this spring, Hollins said he has tried to become a better route runner, a skill he says will help with his longevity as a player. (Daily Tar Heel)

Chase Rice returns for jubilant performance

A sea of Carolina Blue and cowboy boots gathered in Carmichael Arena on Saturday night to see country star and former UNC football player Chase Rice headline the 2016 Jubilee concert. Rice, a UNC class of 2009 graduate, showed UNC pride with his song “Carolina Can.” “If there’s one place I’ve wanted to play this song, it’s Chapel Hill,” Rice told the audience. (Daily Tar Heel)

UNC football piles on the points in annual spring game

The North Carolina football team scored a combined 144 points in its annual spring game Saturday afternoon. That’s not a typo. 144 points. Blue team 74, White team 70. But in this scenario, 144 points doesn’t mean that the Tar Heels, who went 11-3 last season, made 48 field goals or scored 18 touchdowns and six field goals. (NSJ Sports)

Offense Wins, Defense Impresses in UNC Football Spring Game

Although the offense won the UNC football spring game 74-70 under an odd scoring system, it was the team’s defense that made the biggest impression at Kenan Stadium on Saturday. With everyone in the stadium focusing on the quarterback position–and how junior Mitch Trubisky would look in his first appearance since the graduation of former starter Marquise Williams—the defense stole the show with four interceptions. (Chapelboro.com)

Patient Trubisky ready to take UNC's starting QB spot

The offseason is officially here for North Carolina football after Saturday's Blue-White spring game finale. The narrative and the response from the Tar Heels indicate the likely guy under center is the same it's been since 2014 -- Mitch Trubisky. "It's not about me or my playing time," the junior said. "It's about the success of the Tar Heels. That's what I'm all about." (WRAL Sports Fan)

Extra Points: Why Not Us?

“Why not us?” defensive tackle Robert Dinkins asks. “Why can’t we go to the national championship, why can’t we bring a national championship home to Carolina? We have our eyes on the prize, we’re not satisfied with making it to the ACC Championship Game. We want to win it. It was good what we did last year, but it wasn’t enough.” (GoHeels.com)

Offense, defense both have their moments in UNC spring game

Spring football games are usually a glass half full vs. glass half empty proposition. If one side of the ball does well, it usually means that the other side didn’t. Saturday at Kenan Stadium, however, was one of those rare occasions in which both offense and defense came away with something to be happy about. The Tar Heels defense shined by intercepting four passes. (Wilmington Star News)

Spring football: Tar Heels chip away at offseason questions

Though not confirmed by Larry Fedora, it’s clear that it’s Mitch Trubisky’s long-awaited chance to be the first-string quarterback. The redshirt junior seemed particularly fond of receiver Mack Hollins, connecting with him seven times for 111 yards – including an 18-yard touchdown hookup. Trubisky completed 13 of 22 passes for 148 yards. (Burlington Times News)
