CLEMSON — Former Clemson quarterback Taisun Phommachanh has found his new home.

Phommachanh announced on social media Monday evening that he has committed to Georgia Tech.

Phommachanh played in six games last season for the Tigers before entering the transfer portal. He completed 11 of 19 passes for 131 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

The Connecticut native will be immediately eligible to play in 2022. Clemson faces Georgia Tech in Atlanta to open the season.

Phommachanh served as the backup to Tigers starter DJ Uiagalelei throughout the 2021 season.

At one point Phommachanh was in a quarterback competition with Uiagalelei after the California native struggled at Pitt. However, Uiagalelei ended up starting all 13 games this past season.

Phommachanh missed the final two games of the season after being injured in the first half against UConn.

In addition to his passing stats, he also rushed for 69 yards and a touchdown.
