Clemson QB Commit Cade Klubnik Picks Up Fifth Star

Cade Klubnik is officially a five-star.

247 Sports has finally given him his fifth star and with Quinn Ewers reclassifying as a member of the 2021 class, that gave Klubnik his shot at moving up to No. 1 in the quarterback rankings as well.

However, there is one recruiting service that ranked Klubik No. 1 in the country from the outset.

2020 Stats: 3,495 yards, 67.7%, 35 TDs, 3 INT

When it comes to projecting for college, specifically, with an emphasis on a strong floor, production and modern tools for execution, the Clemson commitment is about as good as it gets in the 2022 cycle — and it goes well beyond dominating the Elite 11 Finals the way Klubnik did last week. Some of the reasoning, especially with data, plays the same but the top spot for the Texan is plenty deeper. 

There are almost no weaknesses in Klubnik’s game at this stage of his development. Perhaps the lack of a truly special arm and/or filled-out frame is something to knock against him, but the strengths — from an elite release, comfort on the run, accuracy and most importantly decision-making — combine to help him stand on his own. Late in the 2020 season we learned more of his grit, too, as if he needed more on the intangible side. Beyond leadership and gaudy production as a passer and more-than capable runner, Klubnik playing through the AC joint issue through a near flawless Texas State playoff solidifies how sharp of a bet he seems to be. – SI All American
