QB Deshaun Watson Profile
It was his second visit to Clemson this month.
"It went well," he told CUTigers on Thursday. "I just went up with
some of my coaches. We talked to coach [Chad] Morris and
coach [Jeff] Scott about the offense. I hung out with them.
We went to eat together. It was just a normal day, just seeing all the
coaches and coach [Dabo] Swinney."
At Gainesville High School [Georgia], where Watson will be a junior this
fall, they run a spread very similar to the hurry-up, no-huddle Morris
employs at Clemson.
"The coaches were just figuring out how they run their offense, things we
can work on and some plays we can run. How they run some drills, just a
whole bunch of different things," Watson said.
The future Tiger quarterback was in Clemson just a couple of weeks earlier
for the March Junior Day.
"I went to both junior days. That one, I just hung out with coach Morris
and some of my teammates," Watson said. "I showed some of my teammates
around. We just saw the things. It was like a regular day for me. For some
of my teammates, it was their junior day."
At the time of his commitment, Vanderbilt, UCF and N.C. State had also
offered. Watson said he continues to receive mail from schools, but he's
yet to pick up any new offers.
"It's going to take a lot from those other schools to change my decision,"
Watson will be back in Tigertown for the Orange and White spring game next
As a sophomore, he threw for 3,163 yards and 41 touchdowns and had 1,086
yards rushing with 15 scores.
