Chase Brice has transferred to Durham to quarterback Duke football in 2020 and beyond. What does he bring to the Blue Devils?
Another student walked out of the transfer portal this week. Former Clemson Tigers backup quarterback Chace Brice has decided to play football for the Duke Blue Devils.
Brice, a Georgia native, has served as QB2 for the past two seasons behind starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Despite this possibly being Lawrence’s last year at Clemson, Brice had an uphill climb to become the starter for this season’s national title runner-up. The Tigers have recruited well at the position the last two years bringing in the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the 2020 class DJ Uiagalelei this season and four-star quarterback Taisun Phommachanh in the 2019 class. Suffice it to say the writing was on the wall for Brice.
The decision to transfer to Duke was a fairly swift one for Brice as he was not in the transfer portal very long in contrast to other skill position players who transferred.
Brice has shown qualities of a starting quarterback during his time in Clemson, S.C. His most famous moment came during a game in 2018 against Syracuse when he came in relief of an injured Trevor Lawrence and made some key throws in a 27-23 game.
Let’s take a deeper look at Chase, his transfer and if this will work out for both parties involved.
