Clemson arguably has the best quarterback room in the country.
Between incumbent Kelly Bryant, the Class of 2017’s top quarterback Hunter Johnson, Class of 2018’s top overall prospect Trevor Lawrence and Chase Brice, the Tigers have a talented quarterback competition on their hands.
With so much talent at the position, it begs the question of whether Clemson will play multiple quarterbacks in 2018. As of now, the answer is no.
“That is not anything that we’ve even talked about, to be honest. That really has not come up,” co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott said, according to The State’s Matt Connolly. “Coach (Dabo) Swinney will be 100 percent in charge of all that. We’ll kind of work our way through whenever we get there, but just being honest we have not talked about it one time.”
Bryant entered spring as the starting quarterback, and he is still expected to be the starter when the season begins. He passed for 2,802 yards and 13 touchdowns last season, leading the Tigers to the 2017 ACC championship and a third consecutive appearance in the College Football Playoff.
Whether it be Bryant or any of the other three quarterbacks, Clemson feels like it has a great chance to retain its ACC crown and earn another spot in the playoff.
“We’ve got four guys that can spin it. I think coach Swinney’s made the comment, and I second his comment, we can win with any four of those guys,” Scott said. “I’ve been here going on 10 years, and there’s some years where we had 1.5 quarterbacks, and you’re hoping your starter doesn’t get hurt. We’ve been very fortunate that we didn’t have some injuries at quarterback. This is the first time that we’ve had multiple guys that not just depth, but guys that can truly go out and win for you.”
