J.J. McCarthy Career

McCarthy was offered scholarships by 33 different colleges, including LSU, Michigan State, Ohio State, Texas, and Wisconsin. He was considered one of the best quarterback recruits available. McCarthy has indicated that he will attend Michigan in May of 2019.

In his debut game for Michigan, which was on September 4, 2021 against Western Michigan, he completed four of six passes for 80 yards and a score. The touchdown pass went to Daylen Baldwin for 69 yards, and the other two passes went incomplete.

During the 2021 season, he participated in 11 games and completed 34 of 59 passes for 516 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions. His passing stats were as follows: 34 for 5, 516 yards, 5 touchdowns, 2 picks.

McCarthy and Cade McNamara battled for the starting quarterback position for Michigan before to the 2022 season. McCarthy ultimately won the job. Jim Harbaugh, the head coach of the Michigan football team, made an announcement before to the first game of the season that the fight for the starting quarterback position was close and would continue at least for the first two games. He stated that McNamara would start against Colorado State in the first week, and McCarthy would start against Hawaii in the second week.

McCarthy was the starting quarterback for Michigan’s game against Hawaii and played the most of the first half. He completed 11 of 12 passes for 229 yards and three touchdowns while guiding the Wolverines to a 42–0 advantage at halftime. In the postgame press conference that Harbaugh had, he revealed that McCarthy will start the game against UConn in week 3, and he remarked, “He’s the starter moving forward on merit.”

McCarthy maintained his role as Michigan’s starting quarterback, completing 15 of 18 throws for 214 yards against UConn, 18 of 26 passes for 220 yards against Maryland, and 18 of 24 passes for 155 yards against Iowa. On October 8 against Indiana, he threw for 304 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception (on a ball that was tipped up into the air in the end zone). He completed 28 of 36 passes. On November 26, the Wolverines played Ohio State while still unbeaten thanks in large part to McCarthy’s leadership.

During the triumph, which ended with a score of 45–23, he threw for 263 yards and three touchdowns while also scoring one on the ground. In the Fiesta Bowl, despite the team’s loss to TCU in the College Football Playoff Semifinals 51–45, he completed 20 of 34 throws for a career-high 343 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. His passing yardage was a new personal best. During the 2022 campaign, he finished with a completion percentage of 208 out of 322, a passing yardage total of 2,719, 22 touchdowns, five interceptions, and a quarterback rating of 155.0.
