AP Sports Writer

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is evaluating all positions including quarterback as the Tigers once-potent offense continues to struggle.

Uiagalelei was expected to seamlessly follow Clemson’s decade-long legacy of talented passers that began with Tajh Boyd in 2011 and continued through national champions Deshaun Watson and Trevor Lawrence. But heading into Saturday’s matchup against Florida State Uiagalelei ranks 99th nationally in completion percentage and 128th in TD passes.
