ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit was on the field for Clemson's spring game at Memorial Stadium on Saturday. Of course, the ESPN analyst had major praise for the Tigers heading into their 2019 season.

The praise wasn't limited to just Clemson, though.

Herbstreit had some major praise for a certain SEC quarterback.

The ESPN college football analyst raved about Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm heading into his junior season.

“There’s going to be some faces emerging at Georgia, but by the time we get to conference play, we’ll start to know these new names,” Herbstreit said, via DawgNation. “But Jake Fromm is the guy. You look around the entire county, he’s one of those leaders beyond his Xs and Os and what he can do when he starts throwing the ball.

"Fromm is like a dad that’s on the team, the younger players are like his kids, and I just have a lot of confidence that between his experience and leadership he’ll get the offense in the right spot.”

Georgia is expected to start the 2019 season ranked inside the top 10.

Fromm, a junior, should be one of the best QBs in the country in 2019. The Bulldogs start their season on Aug. 31 at Vanderbilt.
