Usually as a college football fan, I don't put too much stock into commitments. Your word as your sacred law, especially in the South, just doesn't seem to apply to the rest of the country as much as it used to. Knowing that, it was a pleasant surprise to read that Deshaun Watson was 100% committed to Clemson via this article. I didn't put too much stock into it till I read this key line.
“I’m 100 percent solid with Clemson,” Watson said. “I’m not going to visit anybody else. I’m just going to focus on Clemson and my high school season. I’m not interested in going to visit anywhere.”
Gaining Watson is a key cog en-route to building a championship-caliber team. He has the talent of someone that can go in the Top 10 picks in the NFL draft and he'll set our QB position in stone for the next 3 years at least. We all know the tremendous lift Cam Newton was towards his Auburn team. How he took them to the championship in one year and how Auburn sucked terribly the years future and prior. Watson could provide this same kind of lift and more when you factor in the bonus that Watson will provide when you're making the recruiting push for top wide-outs like Sammy and Nuke.
Dabo and the gang has done a tremendous job. Let's hope that the rest of the ACC can follow suit and quick slacking.
