Lawrence is on the 'heels' of Bryant for the starting QB position

Tony Elliott told the reporters at Tuesday's Dabo Swinney media day that the Clemson quarterback battle remains unchanged with senior Kelly Bryant as the starter and true freshman Trevor Lawrence a close second.

"It's the same as it was in the spring," Elliott said the gathering of media. "It was a tight battle coming out of the spring and obviously Hunter is a guy who decided to move on and I’m very excited about his opportunity and future, but now all it does is give those guys more opportunities and more reps to compete. We’re excited about where we are. We know Kelly left the spring as the guy and Trevor was on his heels and Chase Brice made tremendous progress too.

Elliott knows that it's all about the details and execution when they eventually pick the starting quarterback.

"We’re excited about getting back on the grass and seeing who took what we asked them to do this offseason and summer," he said. "And really what it is is going back through the base installs and getting the details down. Because that’s what wins big games. Obviously big plays are important, but who can execute at a high level and execution comes down to details."

Elliott broke down what the coaches will be looking for in the starting signal-caller.

"Consistency. The guy that can come out every single day and do what coach Streeter is asking them to do," Elliott said. "Obviously all of those guys are capable of making the big throws and making the big runs. But who can manage the system? Who can do the little things and be consistent? That's going to be the guy who's going to play."
