Clemson football is right around the corner from its return to action at Bank of America Stadium against Georgia in the Duke’s Mayo Classic on Sept. 4 in Charlotte, N.C.
The Tigers return their whole defense and while they are making a transition at quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei is not your typical first year starter.
Uiagalelei started a pair of games in the middle of the 2020 season while Trevor Lawrence missed time due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Uiagalelei made his first start at Notre Dame in a top five matchup and completed 29-of-44 passes for 439 yards and two touchdowns in a 47-40 double overtime loss.
He bounced back in his second start against Boston College at Memorial Stadium in Clemson where he completed 30-of-41 passes for 342 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a thrilling 34-28 win.
Now Uiagalelei hopes to continue his already successful career for the Tigers as the starter.
