Taking it all in

Deshaun Watson has seen most of Clemson's nine wins in person. The quarterback from Gainesville, Ga. was in Clemson again on Saturday for Tigers' home finale.

Watson visited Tigertown for Clemson's games against Troy, Wofford, Florida State, North Carolina and Wake Forest. All five were wins.

He spoke to CUTigers.com on Sunday about the win over the Demon Deacons.

"I enjoyed it. They were down 14 points. I just knew they were going to come back, because it's happened before this year," he said. "I just kept on believing. They came back. They got that field goal at the end to seal the deal."

Saturday's visit was much like the other four.

"It's usually the same conversation [with the coaching staff]. I got to go into the locker room after the game, talk to the players," Watson said. "They presented the trophy and all the players got hype."

Aside from his trips to Clemson, Watson visited Alabama for the LSU game and Florida for the Tennessee game. He'll be in Athens next weekend for Georgia's game against Kentucky.

Watson's most recent visit that wasn't to Clemson, was to Tuscaloosa.

"It was pretty nice. The visit was OK. The game was really cool, and the atmosphere," he said.

Two weeks ago, a second team offered Watson -- UCF. He thinks Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and Arkansas could be among the schools that will offer next.

Who leads?

"Clemson first, then Tennessee, then Arkansas and then LSU," he said.

Watson's former high school teammate, A.J. Johnson, is a freshman linebacker for the Volunteers. They remain in close contact with one another.

"He just says be patient, go visit as many schools as you can, just pick the one you really feel comfortable with and you're going to stay there for four years and actually get to play, just keep working hard," Watson said.

This season, he's thrown for 2,700 yards and 33 touchdowns and rushed for 600 yards and 12 scores.
