Criswell was a 4-star recruit in the 2020 recruiting class. Arkansas’ 2020 class was impacted by the coaching change.
In 3 seasons with the Tar Heels, Criswell made 14 appearances. After applying his redshirt and the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver for 2020, Criswell has 3 seasons of eligibility remaining.
Criswell saw limited playing time during his time in Chapel Hill. In his college career, he is 18-of-31 passing for 204 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He has also rushed 20 times for 133 yards and a TD. Both scores came in the 2021 season.
