When it comes to numbers, Tucker Israel has a leg up on most quarterbacks. This signal caller from Orlando (Fla.) Lake Nona has some eye popping stats. Over the last three seasons he has thrown for 10,588 yards and 106 touchdowns.
"I think I am really good with the mental aspect of the game," Israel said. "I can identify the defense and I know where to go with the football. I know before I throw and then just make plays.
"I can get us in and out of plays as well. My coaching staff gives me a lot of control at the line of scrimmage."
Israel, 6-foot-0, 197-pounds, still has work to do in improving his game. For now, he's working on the running aspect of the position.
"I want to show people I have running ability," Israel said. "I have a little speed and a little power. I can get on the edge and make plays."
Israel committed to the Clemson Tigers on February 4th. There were a handful of reasons why he wanted to play for Dabo Swinney and his program.
"I love those coaches and know that's where I want to spend my four years," Israel said. "It's a family atmosphere and I love it. It's home. It's slow."
Since he's decision to become a Tiger, Israel has continued to pick up scholarship offers. Just over the past few weeks Israel said that LSU, Kentucky and Ole Miss have offered him. He also said that Auburn and Georgia are showing a ton of interest.
"I wouldn't mind checking out some other schools," Israel said. "But I don't think it would change my opinion of Clemson. There is no doubt about my decision."
