Clemson Transfer Hunter Johnson To Look At Purdue, Northwestern

Clemson transfer quarterback Hunter Johnson is expected to explore opportunities with Purdue and Northwestern, according to 247Sports.

Johnson, a five-star prospect in the 2017 class,  threw for 234 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while completing 77.8% of his passes last season for the Tigers.

While Johnson took part in Clemson’s quarterback competition this spring, he was asked to be part of a three-quarterback committee, splitting time with Zerrick Cooper, behind Kelly Bryant.

Due to NCAA transfer rules, Johnson will have to sit out next season and will be eligible starting in 2019, having three years of eligibility remaining when he returns.
