This past Sunday was the deadline for entering the transfer portal and still retaining eligible for this upcoming 2022 season. Over 2,000 players entered the portal during last year, and not all of them have find a new home. There will be plenty of roster turnover between now and the first week of the season, including some more big time names.
New coaches like LSU's Brian Kelly, Notre Dame's Marcus Freeman, Oklahoma's Brent Venables and USC's Lincoln Riley were under the spotlight this spring, and all of them will face lofty expectations this fall. Plus there is coaching roster turnover with Clemson losing quite a few coaches, so lets take a look at the Tigers season.
There's no to fix the Clemson's QB issues. True freshman was Cade Klubnik was thought to help and take over for the maligned D.J. Uiagalelei, but that does not seem the case as spring wrapped up. Uiagalelei did get a fair amount of praise with a slimmed-down physique and a renewed focus on football. However, Klubnik endured his share of freshman mistakes. After Clemson saw early signs that Deshaun Watson or Trevor Lawrence would ultimately unseat a veteran ahead of them on the depth chart during their first spring practices, there's a lot more gray area with Klubnik and plenty of questions remaining about Uiagalelei.
Then there is LSU who has a new coach in Kelly and the big question is who will be the starting quarterback for this upcoming 2022 college football season
All the eyes were on the quarterback position on at the spring, and it is expected to be a two-player race between Myles Brennan and Arizona State transfer Jayden Daniels. However, the standout from the group was Garrett Nussmeier. The staff has continued to reiterate that Nussmeier is part of this battle, and we saw why on Saturday. He was the only Tigers passer to cross the century mark, finishing 9 of 16 with 136 yards and a touchdown pass. He also led several other touchdown drives.
if LSU gets the right guy under center then the Tigers might be a fun darkhorse bet.
