CLEMSON - A little thin in the quarterback room, Clemson looks to be beefing up its depth by reportedly adding a transfer.
Former Stanford passer David Olson, who is from Columbia, will join the Tigers this year, according to TigerIllustrated.com. Olson will have one year of eligibility remaining.
A 2010 Irmo High School graduate, Olson spent four years at Stanford, apparently redshirting the first and serving on the scout team all four. He did not appear in a game for the Cardinal.
The 6-3, 218-pound Olson received offers to Stanford, Louisville, Harvard and Princeton out of high school, according to his Rivals recruiting web page.
Senior Cole Stoudt has been named Clemson's starting quarterback, and freshman Deshaun Watson will be the top backup, with Nick Schuessler chipping in as well. Chad Kelly was dismissed from the program on April 14.
