Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral did an interview with Eric Edholm of Yahoo Sports this week and revealed that his ankle injury from the Sugar Bowl is fully healed.
Corral also talked about his decision to play in the game rather than opting out. Per On3Sports:
“Absolutely not, I don’t have any regrets,” Corral said. “I put my heart and soul into this team.”
Given his passion for the Ole Miss program, Corral said he didn’t have any qualms about playing in the bowl game. He wanted to play one last game with his teammates before heading to the NFL, and didn’t want to be “selfish” and opt out.
“That is really the reason why I couldn’t just (say), ‘No, I’m not going to play in this game.’ You know, it’s selfish,” Corral said. “I just felt like it was a selfish thing to do because I wasn’t in this position by myself. I couldn’t have done it without them.”
