Last week, Swanny had a chance to talk about the incoming recruiting class. Here’s what had to say about five-star quarterback Cade Klubnik‍.

After Swanny gave his thoughts, Klubnik went on to lead Westlake High School to their third straight UIL Texas 6A Division 2 State Championship. The Chaparrals finished the season 16-0 as Klubni went 14-for-21 for 279 yards and four touchdowns in the contest.

On Cade Klubnik:

“The thing about Cade Klubnik that I really like is the fact that one, you can tell that he's got tremendous poise. At this point, I know it's high school football versus college, you just don't know. Right? But at this point, I think there's a huge difference-- and I think we've seen that with DJ Uiagalelei in him being poised and I think the right word for DJ might be a little laissez-faire. I think DJ lacks poise. I'm gonna be honest with you and this is the first time I've really said this, but in thinking about Trevor Lawrence and Deshaun Watson and watching Cade Klubnik in high school, and even if you watch DJ in high school, you might think he was poised, but I think that the difference being is that DJ's just got this like cool demeanor about him. I don't think that being cool or laid back necessarily correlates to poise. So that's the thing I think DJ really has to work on, is the fact that yeah, you might not get “amped up” or “caught up” in the moment or whatever, but that doesn't mean you have poise. You might not get, butterflies and things of that nature, but it doesn't mean that you’re poised when you have to make plays. Watching Cade Klubnik play-- I like the poise that he's got. I like the way that he's in control of himself-- and I think that much like Trevor Lawrence and Deshaun Watson, that's probably the number one thing about him that makes you feel good having him come into Clemson and be a part of this program.”
