An Indepth Look at QB Chansi Stuckey

We now look at the second quarterback to sign with the Clemson Tigers this year, QB Chansi Stuckey out of Warner Robbins, Georgia. Stuckey chose the Tigers because the coaching staff believed in his ability to run an offense. Can he make it at Clemson as the Tigers #1 QB?

Chansi Stuckey passed for over 1,300 yards and 17 touchdowns this past season for Northside High School. He also rushed for 856 yards and 15 more scores and he was the main reason for his team's romp through the Class AAAAA playoffs.

Over the course of his brilliant high school career, he rushed for close to 2,500 yards and 35 touchdowns, and threw for almost 3,000 yards 34 more scores. It's easy to see why he was one of most highly recruited athletes in the southeast.

QB Chansi Stuckey
Chansi had offers from every major Division I-A program in the south, including Florida State, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Auburn, and LSU. In the end, he chose the Tigers over Auburn, Georgia Tech, and Tennessee.

Chansi is described as an athlete with outstanding quickness and a strong arm. In fact, many experts have likened him to a slightly taller version of Woodrow Dantzler.

He is also fully qualified with a 3.5 GPA and an 870 on his SAT.

"I liked the small town, the coaches and players. They know how to treat you," said Stuckey. "I committed to Clemson because it is the best fit, the best school and the best opportunity. Plus, they are going to let me play quarterback."

Stuckey won't be the only quarterback stepping onto the Clemson campus this fall for the first time. The other is QB Will Proctor out of Winter Park, Florida.

Proctor is more of your traditional drop-back passing type of quarterback, (even though he put up some outstanding numbers on the ground last year) while Stuckey is the guy that can devestate an opponent with his arm or his legs.

That being said, you still have to feel that Chansi could be easily command playing time at one of several other positions much earlier in his career.

With his athleticism, he could make the move to wideout or cornerback very easily. He has good height and great speed, and he would matchup very well against some of the taller receivers in the Atlantic Coast Conference if he can add a few pounds to his frame.

Regardless, with all of his athletic talent, it goes without saying that he'll make his mark on Clemson football program, the only question is when.

We believe that Stuckey will likely redshirt his first year, unless he makes an immediate move to the secondary in the fall. He'll need to bulk up either way, but with his natural athleticism he will be an impact player on this program before its all said and done. Top Stories
