Clemson adds former Stanford QB from Irmo


Clemson got some depth at quarterback with the addition of former Stanford signal-caller David Olson.

Olson played at Irmo High School in South Carolina before heading West. He spent four years with the Cardinal and saw action in just one game. He's transferring to the Tigers as a graduate student and should give the team some breathing room after the dismissal of rising sophomore Chad Kelly.

Cole Stoudt heads to fall camp as Clemson's starter with freshman Deshaun Watson expected to back him up. Olson is 6-foot-3 and 218 pounds and believes he can earn some snaps this fall.

Kelly was in the quarterback competition to replace three-year starter Tajh Boyd, but argued with coaches during the spring game last month and was dismissed two days later
