The most popular question at the Reserve at Lake Keowee remains unanswered, as the Clemson coaching staff gathered for Dabo Swinney’s annual Media Golf Outing.
The Tigers have what Quarterback Coach Brandon Streeter says is a “good problem to have” with Kelly Bryant as the incumbent starter along with freshmen Trevor Lawrence and Chase Brice also pushing to see the field.
Bryant remains in the #1 spot coming out of Spring and going into Fall camp, but the Clemson offensive coaching staff remains enthusiastic that each player can help them win if needed.
Streeter highlights the good characteristics of each:

Of course, quarterback isn’t the only spot that has competition, as Clemson returns its most experienced skill position arsenal in Coach Swinney’s tenure.
Nowhere is that more evident than running back, where Travis Etienne took the Tigers’ backfield by storm emerging as the unquestioned starter by the end of the year.
Both Tavien Feaster and Adam Choice will work to try and earn carries away from Etienne, while Lyn-J Dixon comes into camp as a potential freshman contributor.
Clemson Co-Offensive Coordinator Tony Elliott believes this offense has come a long way from the one that managed just six points in the Sugar Bowl against Alabama.
