Clemson football gives its first two scholarship offers for QBs in the 2022 recruiting cycle
The first two QB offers for the 2022 Clemson football recruiting cycle have been announced and they’re both 4-stars.
Simpson, a resident of Martin, TN, is rated as the No. 4 dual-threat QB by 247 Sports. He is listed at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds. Davis, a Middleton, DE native, is ranked as the No. 6 dual-threat QB by 247 Sports and is listed at 6-foot-4 and 196 pounds.
The quarterback position will be big for the 2022 Clemson football recruiting cycle
Clemson has had a trend over the course of the last few cycles. The Tigers have attempted to recruit ‘big’ in even years at the quarterback position and look for prospects with the ability to come in and make an impact from day one, while looking at developmental projects and promising talents in the future in odd cycles.
The last two even cycles, just for you playing along at home, Clemson garnered commitments from the No. 1 QBs in the nation: Trevor Lawrence in 2016 and D.J. Uiagalelei in 2018. In 2014, a 4-star by the name of Deshaun Watson was the commitment.
The fact that these two guys are the first offers means that the Tiger coaching staff sees something in them that makes them believe they can be the next face of the program. The coaches are very careful in who they make offers to, especially at the QB position, early in a cycle.
It will be interesting to see how their recruitments shape up in the end and Tiger fans certainly need to be keeping up with what happens with these two 4-star QBs over the course of their junior seasons and into the progression of the recruiting cycle.
