Clemson football QB Chase Brice has two more years of eligibility remaining, but many believe he’ll seek another school for playing time.
Rumors are heating up around Clemson football circles concerning back-up quarterback Chase Brice.
Brice, who is slated to graduate in May, still has two years of eligibility remaining and many Clemson football fans are assuming that he’ll look to transfer for an opportunity to gain more playing time at another school.
Earlier this week, Brice posted a picture of himself as a kid wearing a Georgia Bulldogs jersey, but later deleted that tweet.
In addition to talk about Brice heading down to Athens, many have speculated that he may join former Clemson Co-Offensive Coordinator Jeff Scott down at the University of South Florida as Scott takes over the head coaching position there.
Though both of those seem like viable options on the outside-looking-in, it should be noted the Georgia just picked up a transfer commitment from former Wake Forest QB Jamie Newman.
USF also received a transfer commitment from former UNC QB Cade Fortin, who entered the NCAA Transfer Portal back in August. If Scott was looking to take Brice with him to South Florida, you wouldn’t think that he’d be recruiting for another starting quarterback.
At this point, all rumors concerning Chase Brice are vague at best.
Brice could choose to stay at Clemson and would have a final year of eligibility to compete for the starting QB position after Trevor Lawrence leaves for the NFL following this season. However, Brice would have to compete with 5-star QB DJ Uiagalelei and potentially 4-star Taisun Phommachanh.
No matter what he decides, Clemson football fans should wish Brice the absolute best. He has been a team player and a major asset during the past couple of years with the Tigers.
At this point, it’d be expected that Brice goes through spring practice so that he can graduate in May. From there, he would have a decision to make as a potential grad-transfer, should he choose to make that jump.
UPDATE (January 16): Chase Brice has officially announced that he will, indeed, enter the NCAA Transfer Portal. We’ll have more updates and analysis here on Rubbing the Rock.
