QB David Olson transfers to Clemson
Quarterback David Olson has transferred from Stanford to Clemson.
Clemson found itself in need of a quarterback following the departure of Chad Kelly, and it appears the Tigers have found one. David Olson, who is originally from Columbia, South Carolina, told The State that he was returning to his home state to play for Clemson this fall.
"I'm happy to be home and going to Clemson," said Olson. "My family is going to have a chance to watch me play. I looked at a number of places. This visit to Clemson, everything felt right about it and it's a pretty good situation to come into. I’m excited to be a part of the Clemson program and family. There were a lot of good things I couldn’t pass up."
Olson had been serving as a backup quarterback at Stanford the last four seasons, and he just graduated from the school, which means he's eligible to play for the Tigers this season.
Though that doesn't mean he's going to play.
With the departure of Kelly, right now it seems that Cole Stoudt is Clemson's starting quarterback this season, with Deshaun Watson serving as the backup. It's hard to imagine Olson working his way into the mix at this point.
