Clemson QB signee Cade Klubnik sets impressive high school record for passing yards, TD's
Clemson 5-star quarterback signee Cade Klubnik is nearly finished with a record-breaking high school career.
Klubnik attends Westlake High School in Austin, Texas — a program that’s become known for producing high-level talent, especially at the quarterback position.
Last week, Klubnik broke program records — previously held by former Texas QB Sam Ehlinger — in career passing yards and touchdown passes.
Cade Klubnik’s 310 passing yards and five touchdowns against Katy moved the senior quarterback ahead of Sam Ehlinger and into first place all-time in career passing yards and touchdown passes. Klubnik is the first Westlake QB to throw for over 7,000 career yards. #GoChaps pic.twitter.com/08OUFkKA8O

Klubnik is the No. 1 quarterback in the country for the class of 2022, according to 247Sports Composite rankings. He decided to stick with his commitment to the Tigers despite Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott leaving for the Virginia job.
He’s one of 12 players who signed with Clemson during the Early Signing Period. The Tigers lost several high-profile prospects when defensive coordinator Brent Venables accepted the Oklahoma head coaching job. Clemson’s 2022 class currently ranks No. 17 nationally and No. 3 in the ACC, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
Klubnik and Westlake will play for the Texas 6A D-II title on Saturday.
