Offensive Spring Notes
The media gets limited practice access to Clemson football these days but we still have been able to find some tidbits. Below are some things I have heard this spring on the offense:

*Deshaun WatsonDeshaun Watson
So. Quarterback

Gainesville, GA

is a freak of nature. Hs rehab has been just as amazing as his play on the field. In fact, every thing he does amazes those around him.

*The three quarterbacks who are involved in the spring have shown some positive signs but there is inconsistency. Nick Schuesller has been the most consistent. Tucker IsraelTucker Israel
Fr. Quarterback
#10 5-11, 190

may have the best passing mechanics. Kelly BryantKelly Bryant
Fr. Quarterback
#2 6-4, 205
Calhoun Falls, SC

has the biggest upside. The freshmen are still lost when it comes to so many aspects, but the staff is encouraged by their ability.

*Wayne GallmanWayne Gallman
RS So. Running Back
#9 6-1, 205
Loganville, GA

has separated himself from the other running backs. He is bigger and more comfortable. Gallman is still learning, but as he gets more comfortable he becomes more effective.

*The other backs have had a good spring. Zac BrooksZac Brooks

is ultra-impressive. I think this offense will not skip a beat with Elliott. I think that showed in the win over Oklahoma. In fact, the pace has actually increased. Also Brandon StreeterBrandon Streeter

has impressed and has me excited about his quarterbacks developing under him.
