Curious That Hunter Johnson Gets a Bachelors Degree...


Jan 19, 2022, 11:36 AM

in Business from Northwestern (an institution with the #4 ranked Graduate Business School in the country) to come to the #74 (#85 MBA) ranked Clemson Business School to persue an MBA. His collegate QB career performance is undistinguished at best. Not sure if his addition to the team is a tad bit oversold. Any thoughts?

Well, at least you tried.

Speaking from personal experience, given the choice of going to the #1 engineering school in the country, or Clemson, I would choose Clemson every time. It sounds like Hunter and his girlfriend both love Clemson too.

I’ll pass on your dig at his performance.

Time will tell. Let's see how this plays out.

Hunter will push both DJ and Cade to be the best they can be

Jan 20, 2022, 8:50 AM

That’s all he will do.

He’s not coming in to actually compete for the starting spot.

He was originally going to simply be a GA, but Dabo asked him to suit up for his final year and to provide depth.

That’s all it is and all it will be unless we are even more unlucky on the injury front in 22 than we were in 21.

How does it not help Clemson? What degree he gets or does not get are his choice... Perhaps he just loves playing the game and can contribute here and get get another degree... perhaps the connections/culture at Clemson are more in line with his life choices... or you can just poop on him for his success, he is a class act why the shade?

I think he was more interested in working as a Grad Assistant more so than just the degree. It's just that you have to be taking courses to be a Grad Assistant.

One of the articles covers this - I think I remember -


Jan 19, 2022, 12:22 PM

If I remember what I skimmed on one of the articles here on TNet - he got his undergrad AND Grad degree from NW and is coming here to get another graduate degree.


I think the article was specific as to what his degrees were in at NW.


But I could have dreamed this whole thing up . . . . not sure - lol.



Have a good one - report back if you can find the specifics.

He initially wanted to be a GA

My understanding is that it was Dabo's idea for him to enroll and use his last year of eligibility. So he didn't come to Clemson because he wanted a Clemson MBA. While he is not likely ever to see the field in live action, I think his age and experience will be invaluable in the QB room and on the sideline. We get some depth on the roster and an experienced QB in the mix, and he gets to dip his toe into the coaching waters while bettering himself and getting a Clemson degree. Sounds win-win, to me.

Hunter contacted Dabo about the possibility of beginning a coaching career here, as a GA. The conversation evolved into him participating in another year of football as a player, but really a coach for the younger QBs in the room. He is really an insurance policy, and will only see the field most likely in catastrophic circumstances that we pray do not happen.

Absolutely correct RJC. When Hunter asked about a GA position Dabo asked him to play, not the other way around.

Clemson was going into the 2022-2023 season with 3 QB's.... the head coach of the football teams thought that was not enough.. so he pulled in a 4th out of the portal.

Could be Joe Montana could be Joe Deertay ..but it is a 4th QB.

Simple. He wants to get into coaching and Dabo is giving him an opportunity that comes with the added bonus of being on the roster another year.

Feel like he was pretty clear if you've read, and I have

Jan 19, 2022, 2:12 PM

only paid a little attn...

Hunter reached out to Dabo about a GA position. It was Dabo who wanted him to come in as a player to provide leadership and experience to a young qb room.

He's clearly coming to Clemson to learn from Dabo and staff and using school as a way to do so at Dabo's suggestion.

If you're questioning this move, question Dabo... good luck with that.

I’d guess NW wouldn’t guarantee an MBA slot


Jan 19, 2022, 11:57 PM

I have only known a couple from there and I think it’s a program that really prefers some relevant work experience first.

See how it works out?


Jan 20, 2022, 6:11 AM

What does it mean to wait and see how HJ works out? If he is the third string backup great. If for some reason he ends up playing a lot, how is that a negative? I'm glad he's back.

flag link

I can think of a lot of reasons why he is coming back to


Jan 20, 2022, 8:12 AM

Clemson. He already has 2 degrees from NW. I've been told that some employers like to see some diversity in where individuals get their higher degrees (i.e. getting a doctorate or masters at a different institution than their undergrad or masters). Probably has something to do with not having the same professors/line of thinking influencing an individual as they advance in their higher degrees. I'm not sure it really matters but have had more than five headhunters tell me this.

Could also be that Hunter just loves Clemson, saw an opportunity to return and took it. By all indications Hunter is a high character guy whose maturity and experience with adversity will be a positive to the team.

2022 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpgmilitary_donation.jpg flag link

It's for coaching


Jan 21, 2022, 9:15 PM

Given the choice, nobody should choose a Clemson MBA over NW. It might be a very good program, but it's still relatively new.

A man headed for a career in business asks for and receives a chance to to work for no worse than the second most successful individual in a highly lucrative field of employment. He would of course accept such an opportunity.

A highly successful individual learns that a respectable, intelligent person wants to work for him, has a need for that person's abilities and so hires him.

How would this be viewed as a curious move by an intelligent observer?

Clemson's QB room needs to be improved immediately. Dabo had an opportunity to improve his qb room and took it. Hunter had a chance to return to a place he likes to work for Dabo Swinney.

Every part of this move makes good sense to me.

Go Tigers!!

I think he wants to get involved with football. If he was going to concentrate on being an investment banker it wouldn't make sense. He probably will have some sort of career in athletics though. I am not saying playing obviously.

I can imagine a scenario where HJ even ends up starting. Of course, injuries are always in play, but what if DJ performs poorly in the spring and early games and Cade is not quite ready yet? Now that would be something. It would be surprising, but he is definitely an asset.
