Then I went on the visit and started actually hanging out with the players, getting more in depth with the coaches and it showed what it would be like there for the next four or five years. I just felt like that was the place for me. I probably will end up getting redshirted. That’s what I hope to do. But you know if I go out and play real good then I might play my freshman year and that’s good too.”

Quoting Gaddis: “Everybody knows I am an athlete and I wanted to play quarterback. That was a big part of my decision. Clemson was actually the first school that came to me as a quarterback. Early in the year other schools wanted me as a DB and when they came to see me play they started to change their thought process on me. That is when my recruiting process really started to pick up as a quarterback.”
“I just need to improve on being a better quarterback. If you want to be the best, you’ve got to progress every year and every day make yourself better. I’ve got to improve my game everywhere.”
“Everyone calls me a playmaker. When stuff breaks down, I just go. I’m pretty good at reading coverages and taking what the defense gives us.”

There are a lot of great players out there. You can’t just take it for granted you are the best player on the field. You have to practice hard every time you go and play hard on the field.”
