Trevor Lawrence named starter: Here's why

September 24, 2018

So the great debate has gained even more fuel over the past 48 hours. Who should be Clemson's starter? Moments ago, Clemson announced that Trevor Lawrence will start this week against Syracuse and we are not surprised.

Looking over the stats, the two players are actually more similar than you might expect. Outside of passing touchdowns, Kelly Bryant actually matches up pretty well against Lawrence.

In fact, if you take into account rushing yards, Bryant has produced 591 total yards while Lawrence is sitting at 624.
