"He’s not built like a Tom Brady or a Cam Newton with 6-2, 210-pound size, and he doesn’t have an elite deep arm, but he’s got everything else in terms of moxie, mobility, smarts, personality, and accuracy,"'s Pete Fiutak said. "He’s the dynamic playmaker who proved in the national title game against Alabama that he can make the Rodgers NFL throws against a best of the best defense on the biggest of big stages. He’s the dream. He’s not a prima donna in any way, and he’s what every coaching staff and every franchise wants in the leader to run the offense.

Clemson was also ranked #2 in their post-spring football rankings.
