The Clemson football program is set at the QB position for years to come. The Tigers have the brightest future at the position in the nation.
The Clemson football program has one more year with Trevor Lawrence at the helm before the starting QB position becomes a topic of interest again.
When it does, the Tigers will have an answer.
Lawrence- the No. 1 rated QB in his recruiting class- will likely be replaced by 5-star D.J. Uiagalelei- who was ranked the No. 1 QB in this past 2020 recruiting cycle.
When you throw in the fact that Clemson football also has a talented dual-threat option in Taisun Phommachanh– a former 4-star- who will be competing for the position, it’s clear to see why the Tigers have one of the brightest QB futures in the nation.
ESPN posted its top-five best futures for the QB position on Twitter, with Clemson football leading all programs.
In this day and age of College Football, the quarterback position matters more than ever. As a matter of fact, the rule for the landscape nationally is as follows: Either you have a quarterback and you’re relevant, or you don’t have a quarterback and you’re not.
That’s not to say that every program with a talented quarterback becomes nationally relevant, but it is to say that it’s the first step.
The Clemson football coaching staff has taken notice of that and has recruited the position just as good, if not better, than any staff in the nation.
The Tigers have brought in Deshaun Watson, Trevor Lawrence and now D.J. Uiagalelei. You’re talking about three generational talents- all in different ways- and they’re being brought in back-to-back-to-back. It’s absolutely crazy.
As we progress, the future of the Clemson football program certainly looks bright and it all starts with how the Tigers have recruited and developed the quarterback position, which is a great testament to Brandon Streeter and others on that offensive coaching staff.
