A quick look at the Tigers signal-caller
College football has its share of quality quarterbacks this upcoming season. One of those signal-callers is Clemson's Trevor Lawrence, who could make a run for the Heisman this year.
In Athlon Sports' Top 130 Quarterback Rankings, the Tigers' signal-caller is listed at No. 2, just behind Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa.
Here's why: After ranking as the No. 1 prospect for the 2018 signing class, it was only a matter of time before Lawrence emerged as a star one of the top quarterbacks in college football. The Georgia native started his freshman campaign sharing the quarterback duties with Kelly Bryant but earned the starting job after a 49-21 victory over Georgia Tech. Lawrence’s emergence as the team’s starter helped Clemson jumpstart its downfield passing attack, which was instrumental in the program’s run to a national championship. Lawrence ended 2018 with 3,280 yards and 30 touchdowns to just four picks and connected on 65.2 percent of his throws. And here’s a scary thought for the rest of college football: Lawrence can only get better in 2019.
