With Kelly Bryant, Hunter Johnson, Chase Brice and Trevor Lawrence on roster, Clemson football is set at the quarterback position. That being said, most staffs like to bring in at least one quarterback prospect per class. Will Clemson meet that quota in the 2019 cycle?

The Clemson football program has had their pick of the litter at the quarterback position for the past half-decade. From Tajh Boyd, to Deshaun Watson to Hunter Johnson to Trevor Lawrence; recruiting at that position has been pleasant.

Due to a blend of circumstance and availability, it’s unclear whether or not the Tigers will take a quarterback prospect in this recruiting cycle. Sam Howell’s recent commitment to FSU delivered a significant blow to Clemson’s recruiting board.

Current Offers

As I eluded to earlier, their aren’t many elite quarterback prospects in the 2019 recruiting cycle. Not to mention the fact that Clemson’s depth chart is chock-full of former blue-chip prospects.

The Tigers’ delicate situation at the position is evident in the amount of offers they have extended thus far. Clemson has offered just, three quarterback prospects in the 2019 recruiting class.

Two of those three, Sam Howell (FSU) and Bo Nix (Auburn) are already committed elsewhere. That leaves, Taisun Phommachanh as the only uncommitted quarterback prospect with a scholarship offer from Clemson.

I wouldn’t get too excited about the Tigers’ chances with Phommachanh either, as he is currently considered a heavy lean to Florida State as well.

Other Options

There are a handful of other quarterback prospects that are considered Clemson targets at this point. Not to beat on the same drum, but, the well is fairly dry at the quarterback position this year. At this point there appears to be no viable options at the position.

Obviously there is ample time for Clemson to identify other prospects at the position. As of right now, I’d say it’s a wait and see for the Tigers at quarterback.
