Miller Safrit/ESPN.comDeShaun Watson, committed to Clemson, already has a busy summer of visits planned.
In the AAAAA state championship game against Ware County, quarterback Deshaun Watson (Gainesville, Ga./Gainesville) put the finishing touches on a season for the ages, throwing for 305 yards and accounting for five touchdowns to secure the first state championship in school history.
Several college coaches were on the sideline to see Watson’s performance, including representatives from Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, Vanderbilt, Ohio State, UNC, Tennessee and FSU. Knowing the Bulldogs’ offensive coordinator saw him perform well brought an added sense of encouragement.
“I saw Mike Bobo on the sidelines, and he waved at me,” Watson said. “It felt good to show them I am capable of playing at UGA or any school. I left my own team camp to go to Dawg Night last summer, because they said I would probably get an offer, and nothing really happened. My coaches told me they were not interested in me, so I guess I am not the type they want. All of the other SEC schools are recruiting me hard, and UGA is 45 minutes down the road. If they want to miss out on me that is fine, because wherever I go I plan to work my hardest to compete for a national championship.”
