(Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images)No football program is as well stocked at the quarterback position than the Clemson Tigers. Trevor Lawrence will be considered a Heisman favorite over the next two seasons, and the team recently secured the commitment of one of the best quarterback recruits since Lawrence: five-star DJ Uiagalelei.Uiagalelei gave his pledge earlier this month. He is the No. 13 player in the country and the top-rated quarterback in the class of 2020.He helms what some believe may become the best recruiting class of all time. Uiagalelei is one of four five-star commits, and 15 of 16 blue-chip players.This week, Trevor Lawrence and DJ Uiagalelei got to bond a bit at “The QB Retreat,” an adidas-backed event held in California.The event features dozens of the top college and high school quarterbacks in the country, so Lawrence and Uiagalelei were natural invitees.A glimpse of the present and the future of #Clemson football was on display at #TheQBRetreat as #TrevorLawrence and @DJUiagalelei came together to talk shop. #ALLIN pic.twitter.com/TAydFkfVW2— Kevin Carden (@KevinCarden) May 28, 2019Overtime has video of the current and future Tiger stars throwing at the event.Throw in former QBs Tajh Boyd and national champion Deshaun Watson, and even the highly successful Kelly Bryant, who took Clemson to the College Football Playoff before being unseated by Lawrence, and the Tigers have been set at quarterback for a long time.The team also has four-star Taisun Phommachanh joining the team this year, a talented played in his own right.Throw in guys like Bryant, Chad Kelly, and Hunter Johnson that have transferred away, and it is hard to imagine another program having this level of success recruiting any position, much less the most important in the sport.last_img
