(UNDATED) - Former Clemson quarterback Hunter Johnson is transferring to Northwestern, the Wildcats announced on Monday. Johnson announced his decision Monday. He opted to leave Clemson last month after competing for the starting job with incumbent Kelly Bryant and and incoming freshman Trevor Lawrence. In a statement, Johnson says he is thrilled to be part of the Wildcat family. He says that program that Coach Pat Fitzgerald and his staff have built at Northwestern is phenomenal. Johnson will sit out the 2018 season and have three years of eligibility after completing 18 of 22 passes in seven games as a true freshman at Clemson last fall. Northwestern is hoping to get quarterback Clayton Thorson, a three-year starter, back from an ACL injury for the 2018 season but will need a new starter for 2019. Johnson also visited Duke and considered Purdue before picking Northwestern, where his older brother, Cole, played as a reserve wide receiver. Fitzgerald says the program is ecstatic to add a player of Hunter's caliber and character.
