Since 2006 Clemson has started 7, 5, 5, 5, 2, 4, 3, 5, 5, 3, 6, 6, 8, 7, 9, and 6 white athletes. In 2023 they look to improve by one to 7 projected starters. The biggest change will be at QB where Cade Klubnik will be the starter. He replaces DJ Uiagalelei who has moved on to Oregon State. So, Clemson gains a starter on offense and with the departure of Brian Bresee, Clemson will keep one starter as Sophomore Wade Woodaz moves into the starting SLB position.
Worthy of noting there are 3 white receivers at number 2 on the depth chart. WR's Troy Stellato, Cole Turner, and Brannon Specter are all listed as number 2 at their respective positions.
As mentioned, LB Woodaz will be the only white starter on defense, but look for RS Soph Cade Denhoff, DE and SR Tyler Venables, FS to get playing time.

Offense-
QB-Cade Klubnik
RB-Will Shipley
TE-Jake Briningstool
RG-Walker Parks
OC-Will Putnam
LT-Blake Miller

Defense-
LB-Wade Woodaz

Nice writeup. One of my favorite teams to watch and with Cade Klubnik leading the team this year it will be even better! It's fun
to watch Will Shipley grow and mature as an athlete and a running back. His vision and cuts have improved in the last couple of years.
Glad to hear about so many of our guys at receiver on the verge of starting. Good news for sure. Hope the defense whitens up too!

And I would add just as important for Clemson getting back to national contender level is Garrett Riley as their new OC. Klubnik and Shipley plus the white wr’s should put up big numbers this year

I expect Shipley to really set himself apart this season. With Klubnik able to be a run threat as well as stretching the field with his arm, it hopefully, will keep defenses from stacking the box as DJ was not a serious downfield threat.

Some bad news - sounds like Tyler Venables will miss the season due to Hip surgery.
