Clemson backup QB Chase Brice to transfer
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson backup quarterback Chase Brice has decided to transfer, he said Thursday on social media.
Brice is a 6-foot-2, 230-pound redshirt sophomore from Grayson, Georgia, who had backed up Trevor Lawrence and Kelly Bryant the past two seasons.
Brice is best know for rallying Clemson from 23-13 down in the fourth quarter to defeat Syracuse 27-23 in 2018 after Lawrence left with an injury in the first half. The victory was part of the Tigers’ 15-0 national championship season.
Brice said in an Instagram post he worked each day to represent Clemson as best he could. “And while it’s both exciting and sad to say,” Brice is leaving for another school.
Brice finished his time at Clemson with 1,023 passing yards and nine touchdowns, mostly during mop up times.
Brice plans to graduate in May, meaning he will be immediately eligible at his new school.
Lawrence is set to return for his junior year and Clemson has signed quarterback DJ Uiagalelei, a highly regarded prospect ESPN rated as No. 48 best player in the country.
