CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is looking for a few good backups.
Deshaun Watson will be starter after becoming the face of the program despite being sidelined with injuries in his freshman debut season. Behind him, though, Clemson has a little-used backup Nick Schuessler and two freshmen - Kelly Bryant and Tucker Israel, who enrolled early.

Wednesday, the school released three minutes of clips from a particularly...

It has been a very interesting year for new Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly. The former blue-chip prospect was kicked off of the team at Clemson in June, went to junior college and committed to Ole Miss in December, and got into hot water after a bar fight in Buffalo. Ole Miss stuck with the talented quarterback, however, and this week head coach Hugh Freeze brought him on a mission...

Clemson’s past and Clemson’s present at quarterback are currently hanging out at the Tigers’ pro day this morning.
Tajh Boyd, who led Clemson from 2011-13, winning the Orange Bowl his final season, is back on campus. He’s watching some of his former teammates work out in front of NFL coaches and scouts, and he’s doing so while talking to Clemson’s current quarterback...
Everyone knows that the scouting combine is basically ‘the underwear Olympics’. It’s a bunch of football players doing a bunch of stuff that matters in the weight room, on the track, and nowhere else. However, that doesn’t mean that the combine is useless. It doesn’t tell us who is going to be a star and who will be a bust; the only thing that really does that is the interviews...
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Rod Hall scored five of his 15 points in overtime as Clemson recovered from blowing a 23-point lead to defeat Georgia Tech 70-63 in overtime on Saturday.

Stephone Anthony, inside linebacker, 6-3, 242, Clemson…
I’ve learned over the years not to fall in love with a player based on Combine stats. What I try to do is focus more on the player’s movement and agility within the drills. I think a lot of coaches and scouts take that approach also. It’s kind of an intuition thing going on—how fluid does a player look on his turns...

There are many in college football, including ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit, who believe that Clemson signal-caller Deshaun Watson is the sport’s next big star. It looks like at least one of Watson’s teammates would wholeheartedly agree.
