As things stand right now, I could see Bresee and Uiagalelei battling each other for that No. 1 prospect spot with Uiagalelei currently checking in at No. 9.If the Tigers land Uiagalelei, he would be the second No. 1 quarterback recruit to choose Clemson in the past three years – freshman sensation Trevor Lawrence signed with the Tigers in the 2018 class.Lawrence would have one year left before he leaves for the NFL draft – if he decides to leave when eligible.last_img
