Clemson QB announces transfer plans
|Thursday, January 16, 2020, 4:40 PM-|
Chase Brice announced his intentions to transfer on Thursday.
Brice has two seasons left to play and will be eligible immediately at his next school after graduation.
Brice, a Georgia native, completed 58.8 percent of his passes for 581 yards with four TDs to one interception this season. He earned a legendary status at Clemson after rallying the Tigers to victory when Trevor Lawrence went down to injury in the 2018 Syracuse game.
"During my time at Clemson, I've wanted to stay the course and be the best quarterback, best competitor, best student, best person and best teammate I could be and tried to represent the Clemson Family with as much class and character as I possibly could," Brice said in a social media statement. "And while it's both exciting and sad to say, today, I'm announcing my intention to transfer from Clemson and continue my college football career elsewhere."
"The list of people to thank at Clemson is truly endless," Brice continued. "Thank you Clemson Family. No matter where I end up next, I'll always be proud to have been a Clemson Tiger."
Clemson’s scholarship QB outlook for next season is currently rising junior Trevor Lawrence, redshirt freshman Taisun Phommachanh, freshman mid-year DJ Uiagalelei and redshirt sophomore Ben Batson.
