Whitehurst to Start Saturday

Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden said Monday afternoon that freshman Charlie Whitehurst would start at quarterback for the Tigers against North Carolina on Saturday at Chapel Hill. It will be the second straight start for the rookie from Duluth, Georgia.

In his first start he led the Tigers to a 34-31 victory at Duke. He completed 34-52 passes for 420 yards and four scores in that game. The completion total and passing yardage total were Clemson single game records and the touchdown pass total tied a school record.

For his efforts this past Saturday he was named ACC Offensive Back of the Week. He is the first Clemson offensive player to be honored by the league this year.
