Clemson added a quarterback commitment Wednesday from a player who, nearly two weeks ago, was committed to Georgia to play baseball and didn't have any FBS scholarship offers.
Bubba Chandler, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound prospect from Bogart, Georgia, loved football but figured his future was in baseball and had been committed to play that sport for the Bulldogs.
That is until May 7 when he got a phone call from the Clemson coaches.
"It started a few weeks ago, when my coach called me and said Brandon Streeter is about to call you," Chandler said. "I said, 'Who is that?' and he said it's Clemson's offensive coordinator. I was like, oh, OK. I knew they were recruiting another kid at quarterback, so I didn't really think I was going to get the offer, but it happened."
Chandler didn't expect interest from Clemson partially because the Tigers had never come to his school to evaluate him and he had never been on an actual recruiting visit on campus. He was on campus during the 2018 season when his friend, Clemson tight end J.L. Banks, got him tickets to a game.
