Spector talks Clemson’s wide receiver depth, Uiagalelei’s improvement

Speaking to the media on Monday, junior wide receiver Brannon Spector evaluated Clemson’s offensive progress up to this point in the season.
The Clemson receiving corps has found success in 2022, as well as the offense as a whole. Spector believes the depth of the wide receiver room can be an advantage for the Tigers.
“(Our depth) makes it really tough, I feel like, for teams to be able to handle us,” Spector said. “It’s also good for all of us to continue to grind off of each other and learn from each other’s mistakes.
Spector himself has had a productive season thus far, with 11 receptions for 123 yards and two touchdowns. His 123 yards ranks fourth among the Tigers’ receivers.
Spector’s starting quarterback, DJ Uiagalelei, has led the offensive improvement throughout this season, as the Tigers’ starting signal-caller already has 14 passing touchdowns this year, five more than he had all of last year.  
“I feel like DJ’s whole approach this year is just so much better,” Spector said.  “I feel like he’s shaking back from adversity a lot better, and he’s able to pursue adversity a lot better.”
The redshirt junior also pointed out that Uiagalelei has a different approach to how he throws the ball as compared to his previous quarterback, Trevor Lawrence. 
Spector added that Uiagalelei tends to throw the ball higher than Lawrence, referencing Uiagalelei’s experience as a pitcher.
Clemson hopes to continue its offensive success going against their division rivals, Florida State, this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Florida State recently fell in a narrow game to No. 15 NC State, losing 19-17.
Spector has yet to play against Florida State, so this will be his first time facing the Seminoles in his college career.
