2012 quarterback Kaleb Nobles was back in Death Valley Saturday to watch the Tigers defeat NC State 14-13.
“It was a good win. Casey told me during the week that NC State was a good team. He said it would take a big effort to get the win. They didn’t play well early, but they still got the win,” said Nobles.
Kaleb has helped lead Fitzgerald High to the playoffs this season.
“We finished the regular season 8-2. We start the playoffs on Friday against Dublin. We play the first round at home,” said Nobles.
The Tigers are the only offer so far for the dual threat quarterback.
“I had twelve touchdowns and only four interceptions this year. I threw for over 1000 yards. I am not the typical quarterback that you see on TV. Most of the ones you see today are 6-4 or 6-5. I don’t have the height but I love to go out there and help the team out as much as I can. If I have to run the ball I run the ball. It is fun to have to slide to the left or right to find the lane to throw the ball ,” said Nobles.
The 5-9, 180 pound quarterback gets to see the program up close because his brother is on the team.
“It gives me a chance to see things. I just get to build those relationships. Last year with C.J. and Kevin I really got the inside scoop on the team. Casey and I talk almost every day. He told me early in the week that Tajh would get some playing time. It is pretty cool. I get some inside scoop and get to know the coaches,” said Nobles.
Kaleb has another special tie with Clemson as he grew up in Spiller’s hometown.
“C.J. basically grew up in our house. I got to see him play in middle school. He was good back then. I can still remember I could never beat him in video games,” said Nobles.
When does the Georgia standout plan to make a decision on his college destination?
“I know I am not going to commit until my senior year. If anybody offers I will consider them. I am on pace to graduate early. It will be sometime the summer before my senior year or during that season,” replied Nobles.
