For the past two seasons, former five-star quarterback prospect DJ Uiagalelei was the starting quarterback with the Clemson Tigers. But after he was benched late in the season last year, he decided to transfer to the Oregon State Beavers. And it sure doesn’t sound like he regrets that decision.

This week, DJ Uiagalelei was asked about his time at Clemson, and he had some strong words for his former team.

“I didn’t want to do what I was doing at Clemson. I didn’t really like what we did there scheme-wise,” Uiagalelei said. “It was very basic. It didn’t help me out as a quarterback and play to my strengths. I wanted to go somewhere that would play to my strengths and go somewhere that would develop me for the NFL. Play-action, work under center, throwing the ball deep.”

“This has been definitely different. The scheme is totally different than what we were doing at Clemson. I feel like it’s a lot better,” said Uiagalelei. “It’s just new stuff. I wasn’t doing any of these run-checks at the line; I wasn’t really under center. It’s a lot more plays. All of these different play-action plays; these different two-man routes, three-man routes. All the stuff that I wanted to do at Clemson but we weren’t doing. It’s exciting. I’m just taking it day-by-day.”

It’s a pretty brutal assessment of Clemson’s offense, and the college football world had plenty to say about it on Twitter.

We’ll have to see how both Clemson and Uiagalelei fare after his departure from the team.
