CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- For the first time in five years, Clemson has questions at quarterback.

The Tigers began what figures to be a three-way battle to succeed record-setting passer Tajh Boyd with the start of spring practice Wednesday.

Boyd threw for nearly 12,000 yards and an Atlantic Coast Conference record 107 touchdowns during his time at Clemson. Now, coach Dabo Swinney is looking for Boyd's replacement among longtime backup Cole Stoudt, redshirt freshman Chad Kelly and prospect Deshaun Watson, who enrolled early to take part in spring drills.

The last time Swinney had a quarterback decision came in 2009 when Kyle Parker beat out Willy Korn for the starting job. Once Parker left two seasons later, Boyd stepped in and led Clemson to an ACC title and a 32-8 record.
