The ACC is losing big-name quarterbacks like Sam Hartman, DJ Uiagalelei, Devin Leary and Malik Cunningham from last season, but the roster for ACC Media Days (officially ACC Football Kickoff) is a reminder that there is still plenty of talent at the position entering 2023. Of the league’s 14 programs, 11 are slated to bring quarterbacks to Charlotte, North Carolina, for the unofficial kickoff for a new season.
Some like North Carolina’s Drake Maye, Florida State’s Jordan Travis and Duke’s Riley Leonard are proven stars. Others such as Clemson’s Cade Klubnik and Wake Forest’s Mitch Griffis are stepping into the new territory by beginning the season as starters. Klubnik and the Tigers’ offense figure to be a hot topic during the three-day event as Clemson welcomes new coordinator Garrett Riley to try and spark a unit that underachieved in 2022.
The Tigers have won seven of the past eight ACC Championship Games, but there is a perception that they are slipping a bit after missing out on the College Football Playoff for two straight seasons. Florida State and a bevy of others are hungry to change the balance of power in the ACC, and ACC Media Days will help cement the storylines surrounding the conference entering the 2023 season.
