At this moment in time a year ago, Clemson was less than one month away from its spring practice, and the constant topic of conversation was the quarterback situation.

Once Deshaun Watson ended his Clemson career with a national championship, wondering who would follow in the greatest player in school history’s footsteps became human nature. Watson’s shadow towered over the quarterbacks in waiting.

As for Kelly Bryant, Watson’s backup along with Nick Schuessler for most of his career, he had to hear critics asking if he thought about changing positions.

I'll be honest, Clemson is in a great spot. Kelly is a smart, hard working, and talented guy. The other two are just top of the mark and it will be a battle. Funny no one ever mentions Chase Brice about depth.

Tough following DW4 and a championship. Nothing short of a repeat was going to satsify fans. Bryant led Clemson to wins over Auburn, Louisville, FSU, NC State, SC, Miami for the ACC Championship and the CFP that only 4 of 130 teams make...

3 years ago that would have put you on a pedestal...

This is going to be a great year for Clemson Football. I for one an not worried in the least about the QB position next year. KB with a year experience under his belt, HJ (5 star) with a year experience in the program, TLAW (Super 5 star) coming in early to learn the ropes.....Boys we are loaded!!!! Go Tigers!!!!
