North Carolina WR Anthony Ratliff-Williams hits teammate with 35-yard touchdown pass

Anthony Ratliff-Williams cut his teeth as a dual-threat quarterback at national power Butler High School in Matthews, N.C., just outside of Charlotte. He was ranked by 247Sports as the 11th-best at his position in the class of 2015, but has settled in as a wide receiver and return specialist for the North Carolina Tar Heels.

Ratliff-Williams showcased his return abilities early in the Tar Heels’ game against Pitt on Thursday by bringing the opening kickoff back 98 yards for a touchdown. But his arm looked fairly strong in the second quarter with the Heels trailing the Panthers 17-14 with 4:36 left in the second quarter.

And, as it turns out, Ratliff-Williams found himself in rather elite company after his touchdown pass:

The Tar Heels would take a 24-17 lead into the locker room at halftime against the Panthers.
