Clemson's Trevor Lawrence successor to enter transfer portal after ACC Championship benching: report

Dec 5, 2022

Trevor Lawrence led Clemson to a national championship as a freshman in 2019 and a few years later he was succeeded at the quarterback position by another highly touted prospect – D.J. Uiagalelei.

After getting benched during Clemson’s ACC Championship victory over North Carolina, Uiagalelei is reportedly looking to enter the transfer portal in hopes of finding another school to lead. Uiagalelei’s intentions were first reported by 247 Sports, but the quarterback has yet to make it official.

Uiagalelei was the No. 1 pro-style quarterback recruit in the Class of 2022 and a five-star prospect, according to some of the top scouting websites. He made his debut in 2020 as a true freshman against Notre Dame when Lawrence was off the field dealing with COVID.

On Saturday, he was benched for freshman Cade Klubnik, who had 279 passing yards and two total touchdowns in the 39-10 victory.
