He had over 4,000 yards of total offense as a sophomore and he committed to Clemson after his freshman season. He's a Tiger, but still exploring all of his options. "Clemson is still my school and I am still committed to them, but I still have two more years of high school, so I want to keep looking," Deshaun Watson told Scout. "I want to go around, see more place, meet more coaches, and just see different things. You only go through the recruiting process one time, so I want to take advantage of this."
He has spent plenty of time on the Clemson campus and around the Clemson coaches, so he is going to spend the next few days in Knoxville on the Tennessee campus.
"I will be up at Tennessee on Monday and Tuesday throwing the ball around and trying to impress their coaches. They have told me if I do well, then they will probably offer me, so I will be working for an offer."
Watson hopes to hear good news from UT coaches this week and he thinks another school closer to home could pull the trigger too.
"Georgia coaches liked me when I was at their camp Friday night they told me they would be in contact with me later this week.
"The Georgia coaches have been calling my coaches a lot, so I know they are interested, and I they told me I did well at Dawg Night."
The 6-foot-2, 180 pound signal caller out of Gainesville, Ga. would like to add a Bulldog offer.
"I have a lot of interest in Georgia," Watson said, "I have always liked them. They are always at or near the top in the SEC, they run a very good pro-style offense, and I know they put quarterbacks in the NFL. That is my goal, so I like them a lot."
Another program that the future Scout300 member has on his mind is Ohio State. The Buckeyes are the latest school to offer him a scholarship.
"Coach Miller (Gainesville head coach) told me to call Ohio State, so I did. I talked to Coach [Tom] Herman and he told me that Ohio State was offering me and that they were going to recruit me hard.
"I liked that and I am trying to visit them on Friday for their Friday Night Lights camp. Urban Meyer has been one of my favorite coaches and I like what he did at Florida. It is big for me to be recruited by him. I am looking forward to it."
The Buckeye offer was Watson's seventh offer. Outside of them and Clemson, Auburn, Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, UCF, and Vanderbilt have offered this talented junior.
