Personal Life

Drake Maye was ranked by On3 as the No. 5 quarterback coming out of Charlotte Myers Park in the Class of 2021. During his high school career, Maye tallied 6,713 yards and 86 touchdowns on 398-of-581 (68.5%) passing over two seasons. Maye played in four games as a true freshman and showed some flashes that made the UNC coaches excited about the future. He became the starting quarterback in 2022 and had a breakout performance against Appalachian State, helping the Heels rack up 63 points on offense. “Drake’s experienced and poised beyond his years,” UNC coach Mack Brown said. “He plays his first game at home and throws five touchdowns. Then he goes on the road in a tough environment, and he never changes who he is. He’s 6-5. He’s 220. He can run. He’s very accurate. He’s a decision-maker. The biggest thing is he’s a good decision-maker, and he’s very accurate. It reminds me a lot of Colt McCoy. Colt was so accurate in practice that the ball never hit the ground and it’s very, very similar with Drake.” Mom, Aimee, attended UNC and brother, Beau, is currently enrolled. His brother, Cole, won an NCAA baseball title at Florida.
