      Clemson focus again on quarterbacks

      By PETE IACOBELLIAP Sports Writer

      CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson's focus at the start of fall camp is again on its quarterbacks, though for a different reason than the previous two seasons.

      Then it was seeing how far record-breaking passer Tajh Boyd could lead the Tigers. On Friday, it was about who will follow Boyd behind center and if he can keep Clemson's high-energy offense on the move.

      Senior Cole Stoudt won the job in the spring after spending the past three seasons as Boyd's backup. He will be pressured by freshman Deshaun Watson, one of the country's top prep prospects who accounted for Georgia state marks with 17,134 yards and 218 touchdowns.

      Tigers coach Dabo Swinney says Stoudt has done well in the offense and earned the chance to start the opener at Georgia on Aug. 30.
