Brice: ‘I’m ready to enter this new chapter’

Clemson signee Chase Brice is ready to begin the next chapter of his life in less than a week.

The standout quarterback from Loganville, Ga., will arrive on Clemson’s campus to start his career on Sunday.

“I’ll be getting to Clemson June 25, probably around 11 or 12, and I’ll be with my parents,” Brice told The Clemson Insider. “We are all really excited. It feels like it’s been forever, but it also feels like this moment came really fast. I’m ready to enter this new chapter.”

Brice, who will be rooming with preferred walk-on wide receiver Will Brown, committed to Clemson in December 2015.

A four-year starter at Grayson High, Brice compiled a 40-7 career record and led his team to the 7A state championship as a senior in 2016. During his career, he completed 524 of 848 passes (61.8 percent) for 7,977 yards and 89 touchdowns against only 25 interceptions.

The former national top-200 prospect by Rivals has been taking care of his body and staying sharp both mentally and physically in order to be prepared for summer workouts and fall camp.

“I’ve been working out, following a plan and eating healthy,” Brice said. “I’ve been throwing, getting my arm back in shape and looking over certain things that Clemson gave me to be prepared.”

What does Brice hope to accomplish in his freshman year?

“Some goals would include getting a great feel for the offense and understanding schemes and the way they do things,” he said. “Going in everyday giving 100 percent and having the right attitude and mindset.”

Brice keeps in touch with his fellow signees and the current players, and recently visited Clemson during the second session of the Dabo Swinney Camp last week.

“I talk to the players occasionally through social media or FaceTime or by texting,” he said. “I went up to Clemson last week to see the coaches and just to see everybody.”

Brice can’t wait to join the defending national champions in just a matter of days, and do so with the opportunity to compete in what is a tight quarterback battle at Clemson.

“I’m just thankful and glad to be in this position right now because I know a lot of other quarterbacks who want to be in the spot I am,” Brice said. “I’m thrilled to join the competition to be honest. I love competing. It brings out the best in people. You can learn a lot about yourself.

“I’m just happy to be around a great group of guys, and coaches. I’m ready to get to work.”
