I mean, to watch him throw the ball is just like, ‘wow.’ And that’s all great, but is he going to be able to handle the amount of installation that we’re going to, the pace we’re going to put things in? Can he make the adjustment, terminology wise? [Defensive coordinator] Brent Venables is not a guy that lines up in 4-3, Cover 2.

If we can keep him on the right path here he’s going to be special, and boy was he. Graduated in three years, played in two national championship games, won one of them, three playoffs, three conference titles, winningest quarterback in school history. And to be quite honest with you, he’s one of the main reasons I think we played college football this past year,” “He didn’t even have to play. But he was one of the main guys kind of leading the charge to play. And that just says a lot about his mental makeup. How competitive he is. How much he loves to play the game. I told Urban that, what you’re going to be blown away by is how smart he is. How quickly he picks things up. How much he loves to work at it, how much he loves to prepare.

Dabo Swinney said ( about Dabo Swinney ) : "It’s just a great vibe to have in a quarterback”. Uiagalelei, a rising sophomore, soaked up as much as he could from Lawrence, both on and off the field. Uiagalelei watched how Lawrence handled himself at practice and even how the 6-6, strong-armed quarterback got his schoolwork done. Uiagalelei is not concerned with matching Lawrence, just continuing the success of Clemson's offense. “I'm just trying to do my job, be a leader for the guys,” Uiagalelei said. “Be a voice and just be the leader of the offense”. There's work ahead for Uiagalelei, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. “We want him to be that guy that fully committed to being a threat with his legs and his arms," “He's 250 pounds.
