DT Josh Watson Profile
Clemson will get an official visit this weekend from Hargrave Military Academy defensive tackle Josh Watson.
CUTigers recently caught up with Watson to see how his official visits to Boston College and Duke went.
"I didn't like (Boston College) too much. I've cancelled them out," he said. "Duke was real good."
While he was in Durham, Watson said he received "royal treatment."
"No question was left unanswered and my parents had a good time," he said.
Originally from Wilmington, D.E., Watson's parents won't make the trip to Tigertown, where he expects to arrive on Friday.
"I'm sure they'll do a good job of filling me in with enough information that I won't have to ask any questions (at Clemson)," he said.
Watson has scheduled a fourth visit for North Carolina the weekend after he goes to Clemson. He could add a fifth official scheduled soon. After a combine at Hargrave on Monday, he might pick up additional offers from the likes of West Virginia, Michigan State and LSU.
"They'll be talking to me this week. I won't go on a visit unless they have something to me in writing," Watson said.
Watson finished high school fully qualified with a pair of Division II offers before enrolling at Hargrave to help improve his stock. He's also been offered by Virginia, Memphis, Connecticut, Syracuse and Florida State.
For now, he's got a leader on top.
"I guess by default Duke is at the top because that's the first visit I took of the three that I'm considering," Watson said.
A commitment will come sometime around Christmas.
"I just want to see how the players are, how the coaches treat me--that's about it," he said.
Scout.com rates Watson as a four star prospect.
