Certainly one of the nation’s up-and-coming quarterbacks made his solution to Clemson earlier this month and took part within the Dabo Swinney Camp.
Jamison “JT” Kitna is a 6-foot-2, 200-pound quarterback out of Burleson (Texas) and despite never taking a Varsity snap, has picked up three Power Five offers this season. You could recognize his last name, as he’s the son of a former NFL QB himself, however the rising sophomore in the category of 2025 is about to carve out his own path.
“Camp was awesome,” Kitna told The Clemson Insider regarding his Swinney Camp experience. “I got quite a lot of reps. I threw it well that day and I just got to learn the way they time routes with different drops and the way they train their quarterbacks.”
Kitna had a likelihood to satisfy with Brandon Streeter before the camp. Afterward one among Streeter’s offensive student assistants, Will Watts, gave Kitna and his family a tour of the campus.
“It was great seeing all the pieces and meeting everyone and learning about their culture,” he said.
Kitna then had a likelihood to satisfy again with Streeter.
“He’s awesome,” Kitna said of Clemson’s offensive coordinator/QBs coach. “He’s easy to refer to, outgoing guy that’s very real, loves what he does and just overall loves Clemson.”
Kitna said that he’s considering returning to Clemson for a game day visit this fall, but he doesn’t want it to interrupt his season.
This upcoming season, Kitna will take over the reins of Burleson’s quarterback room. The job has turn into his after Burleson’s former starter — Dylan Raiola, a one-time Clemson goal — transferred to Chandler (AZ.) High School to be closer to family.
Raiola, who is taken into account to be the nation’s No. 1 overall quarterback and No. 1 prospect in the category of 2024, per the 247Sports Composite rankings, verbally pledged to Ohio State last month.
That opens the door for Kitna to be the starter and play under his father and head coach, Jon, a longtime quarterback within the NFL for the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys.
Fortunately for Jamison, his older brothers Jordan and Jalen also played quarterback for his or her father in highschool. Jordan finished up his college football profession at Colorado State University-Pueblo in 2021, while Jalen is a redshirt freshman on the University of Florida.
“All the things,” Jamison said when asked what he’s learned about being a QB from his father and his brothers. “You understand, just watching them ever since I used to be really young, picking up on things here and there. It’s type of unfair to my oldest brother because he was the Guinea pig, but yeah, all the pieces from motion to mental a part of the sport to day-to-day life and what being a quarterback means.”
Jamison describes himself as a pro-style QB that may run. He’s all the time playing the chess game throughout the game but extending plays when needed.
So far as his recruitment is worried, Jamison has gained some traction on the recruiting trail already and it has every bit to do along with his ability on the sphere and fewer do along with his last name.
“Been good for somebody that has yet to play a varsity snap, but thankful for all God has done,” he said. “This offseason, I’ve picked up three offers from Houston, Duke and Texas Tech. Then, I’ve gone on quite a lot of visits with coaches, but it surely’s been great attending to see what different places must offer.”
