Criswell lost a preseason competition with Drake Maye to be Carolina’s starting quarterback. Maye never looked back as he won ACC Player of the Year honors this season.
Criswell was a 4-star quarterback in the class of 2020. He was the No. 262 overall player in the country for that cycle, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
He will have up to three years of eligibility at his next program. The transfer portal officially opens on Monday.
