Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables was very complementary of Florida State quarterback James Blackman when he spoke to the media following Wednesday’s practice at the Poe Indoor Practice Facility in Clemson.
Blackman has started every game for the Seminoles since Deondre Francois went down with a season-ending knee injury in the season opener against Alabama.
“He is very impressive and he has given them a chance to win virtually every week,” Venables said about the true freshman quarterback. “They have had a bunch of tight games and some of the adversity that you face, you have seen them grow from it.”
Blackman comes into Saturday’s 3:30 p.m., kickoff against No. 4 Clemson completing 59.1 percent of his passes for 1,285 yards and eight touchdowns to go along with seven interceptions.
