Q&A with QB Mitch Trubisky

Was there any pressure put on you to remain in (your home) state and become a Buckeye? Mitch Trubisky: "Well, there kind of was. They had a quarterback commit before I was ready to commit so after they had their quarterback, I started to look elsewhere. I found North Carolina and I really liked it, I love the system and the coaches and I was ready to pull the trigger at that time so I decided on North Carolina. There has been some pressure back and forth but I am very pleased with my decision." (Keeping It Heel)

And tonight, he showed them that heroes are people that not only have special talents, but they also go out of their way to help others and try to make them feel happy and special. Mitch is a role model for all children. (News-Herald)
