Clemson QB Target In 2021 Announces Top Four

Christian Veilleux, the four star QB prospect out of The Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland, released his list of top four schools Sunday evening on Twitter. Tennessee, Penn State Duke, and Clemson made the cut.

Veilleux is ranked as the 15th best pro style QB in the 247 Composite Rankings. He has offers from more than 20 schools, with the most recent coming from LSU, who did not make the cut. He was able to get in junior day visits to Duke and Penn State before the corona virus shut visits down. He visited Clemson back in January, along with Tennessee, and has hinted in the past that he may have a decision in May or June.

Veilleux is listed at 6’4 and 200 pounds, with 247’s Brian Dohn predicting he would become a “multi year starter at a Top 20 program.” However, there is still a long ways to go with this class, and as most know, anything can happen.

For Clemson fans however, the current coaching staff has a pretty good track record when it comes to identifying talent, particularly at the quarterback position. In other words, do not let the fact he is ranked only 291 overall concern you.

Brian Dohn of 247Sports evaluated Veilleux:

Good frame and size. Pocket passer with mobility. Release is usually compact, especially on short throws. Ball comes out of hand freely. Accurate, particularly on short throws to edge and intermediate routes. Throws catchable ball with touch. Good footwork and base works in unison with arm. Gets through progressions. Plays composed. Drags ball a little at start of throwing motion. Improving arm strength will help on long throws. Adding strength will help. Sometimes relies more on touch than fully committing to throw. Has to learn to play under center. Multi-year starter at Top 20 program.
