For the second time in less than a week, Clemson has lost a quarterback to transfer. Fortunately for the Tigers, their depth chart at that position remains insanely good. Clemson announced on Monday that Tucker Israel will transfer to another program after getting his degree. Israel, who appeared in two games and completed all four of his pass attempts as a redshirt freshman in 2016, did not play this past season. In high school, he surpassed Tim Tebow's state record for touchdown passes in a single season. At one point last offseason, Israel was in the competition to be the Tigers' starting quarterback, but an illness over the summer derailed those hopes. Israel is the second quarterback to transfer from Clemson in the past week. Last Friday, Zerrick Cooper also announced he was transferring out. But these aren't hard times for Clemson's quarterback room. Kelly Bryant returns as a senior and the situation behind him is loaded thanks to a depth chart with Hunter Johnson, Chase Bryce and Trevor Lawrence.
Despite two transfers in a week, Clemson's quarterback situation is just fine in 2018
