if I am him, I’d want out. I think a fresh start will help both him and Clemson. Dabo is a great coach and more importantly a great man. He gave it his best to improve DJ but sometimes think just don’t click.
Let him play the ACC Championship game and the bowl game, shake hands and good bye. DJ will graduate in December. The education part is done.
ZERO % chance that happens. I hope he hits the portal for a change of scenery, but it's not gonna surprise me if we see him trotting back out there QB1 again next year. At this point, it wouldn't surprise me if Dabo doesn't offer to kiss his bare ### to stay because he has some weird commitment to him.
I’ll bet Dabo never ever tries to talk a kid out of quitting sports again. I think he’s learned he can be really persuasive and a kid will tell him what he wants to hear even if his heart isnt in it. Keeping up his end of the deal by allowing DJ to start every game regardless of performance has nearly tanked his credibility.
No, obviously. I am just so excited to watch DJ start as our QB for the next 2 years. He kind of reminds me of a hybrid between Michael Vick running the ball and Peyton Manning throwing that ball. He is amazing. That guy almost broke the 100 yard passing barrier last week. I am just thankful we have him. I would hate to see him transfer.
I think its more likely he quits football altogether than he transfers somewhere else. He's got his degree, a little NIL money in his pocket (which he won't be seeing any more of) and, most importantly, he doesn't really seem to enjoy football. He obviously isn't ever going to make the NFL so why continue with the whole charade?
Sometimes really feel sorry for DJ...the press built this one as a 'great' QB coming out of a great school in southern California (that should have raised red flags everywhere) and it just was not so! Yes he had a powerful arm but did not know how to pass, could not read defenses, progression out the window and little mobility in the pocket! Someone sold CCC a bill of goods that they could not convert into a winning college QB...DJ can transfer and get his advanced degree hopefully but don't think he will ever play QB in the NFL...that running crap will get him killed! I do wish DJ well but more well somewhere else!
