Scott: ‘Kelly doesn’t look like a first-year starter’

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant continues to impress. On Saturday night, the junior totaled 280 yards of offense including 94 on the ground, leading second-ranked Clemson to a 31-17 victory at No. 12 Virginia Tech.

Coupled with his performance at Louisville, Clemson co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott feels this should quiet critics who questioned Bryant’s ability to handle playing on the big stage.

“Every week, we get the next question, going on the road in a hostile environment. Nobody really wanted to give him any credit after Louisville,” Scott said of Bryant. “Before Louisville, it was going to be the biggest atmosphere and all that, He went in and got it done, and this week it was the same-type questions.

“Kelly doesn’t look like a first-year starter. He looks like a guy that’s been playing football for a long time, and he’s just led the team. He did a great job running the ball, making good decisions. Really can’t be more proud of him as a leader in that situation.”
