Deshaun Watson, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound signal caller from Gainesville, Ga. spoke with CUTigers about the visit on Sunday afternoon.

"It went very well," Watson said. "I got to see all the coaches. I spent the whole day with them, toured the campus, went to the basketball game, got to go to the academic center and see what their classes are like. I had a really good time."

He spent most of his afternoon with offensive coordinator Chad Morris.

"He got to meet my mom and the rest of my family," Watson said. "He talked about the things he has in the future for us, about the offense, the school work. I got to meet his family. We just hung out all day, really."

What stood out during the trip?

"Everything was pretty cool. The other things I didn't get to see before, it was pretty nice. Vickery Hall was pretty cool," he said. "Going to talk with coach [Dabo] Swinney in his office with my family. My mom meeting him that was pretty cool, too."

No other junior day visits are on the docket for Watson.

"I wanted to make sure Clemson the first one I go see," he said. "I'm not sure [about other trips]. I'm about to talk to my head coach at the high school and see what's next."

Clemson, Vanderbilt, UCF and N.C. State have offered.

"I heard a lot of schools are going to wait until after signing day on Wednesday. Other schools are going to come by and see me, check me out," Watson said.

Who leads?

"I like Clemson, I like Bama, Florida, Oklahoma State, Arkansas and Tennessee," he said.

There is no particular order.

Watson threw for 3,163 yards and 41 touchdowns and had 1,086 yards rushing with 15 scores as a sophomore.
