Through the first eight practices this spring, Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant says he is just trying to stay consistent as he battles it out with Zerrick Cooper, Hunter Johnson and Tucker Israel to be the Tigers new starting quarterback.
“All we can do it watch the tape from this last scrimmage and see what we can learn from it,” Kelly said. “There are lot of things we can learn from this offense and just go from there.”
With the graduation of quarterback Deshaun Watson, much of the attention this spring has been on the quarterback position. Bryant, a junior, has been running the number-one offense so far this spring and according to Swinney had a solid scrimmage, completing 7-of-13 passes for 91 yards.
Bryant completed 4-of-5 passes, including a 39-yarder to Hunter Renfrow, on a late touchdown drive against the number-one defense. Freshman Zerrick Cooper completed 4-of-8 passes and had a 13-yard touchdown run.
“(Bryant) has not done anything to lose the job,” Swinney said. “He has been very consistent. He started off slow today, but he finished strong. He has been really consistent.”
