Clemson has been actively working two quarterbacks over the past couple of weeks, Bubba Chandler of Bogart, GA and Lucas Coley of San Antonio. Quarterbacks coach Brandon Streeter and offensive coordinator Tony Elliott have been laying the groundwork for an offer to one, or both, of these prospects. Streeter talked via FaceTime with both on Tuesday. Wednesday night Elliott did likewise with Chandler.
“I FaceTimed with Coach Elliott for half an hour today,” Chandler said. “It went well. He isn’t going to the one mainly recruiting me. That will be Coach Streeter. But he still wanted to reach out and see me and talk. We talked about how they adapt their offense to the personnel they have, and how they played last season.”
The question now for Chandler, when might he hear from Clemson on an offer?
“Last night Streeter said very soon,” Chandler said. “After I talked with Elliott, the next step would be Coach (Dabo) Swinney. Then get on Zoom calls with academic advisors and all that. Yes, I do believe it is (moving towards an offer). Streeter told me last night I am their number one quarterback they’re recruiting.”
Chandler currently is a Georgia baseball commitment, but a Clemson offer might prompt him to flip. He said if he gets that offer, he would then talk with Clemson baseball coach as well with the idea of playing both sports.
“I feel great,” Chandler said about how things stand with Clemson. “Clemson is an amazing place, not only for the football part, but the college and family life.”
Last season Chandler, whose given name is Roy, passed for 2098 yards completing 167 of 220 attempts, a 75% completion mark, with 27 touchdowns. He also rushed for over 500 yards and 4 touchdowns. In 10 baseball games this season before the suspension of school. Chandler, who is a right handed pitcher and shortstop, was 2-0 with 16 strikeouts in 7 innings, and was batting .435 with 2 homer runs, 5 doubles and 16 RBIs.
