Deshaun Watson to make White House visit

by - Assoc. Editor -

The Clemson Football team will celebrate their National Championship in football with a White House visit on June 12. However, many of the players that were on last season's team are now playing in the NFL and won't be able to make the trip because of their various professional obligations.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney shared on the David Glenn Show on Tuesday that he thinks that Deshaun Watson and defensive tackle Carlos Watkins will be able to make the trip to the White House courtesy of Houston Texans owner Bob McNair.

“I think (McNair is) actually going to fly Deshaun and Carlos,” Swinney said. “So that’s really the only way they’re going to be able to get there. But we’ve got guys out in California and down in Miami. So it’s just kind of hard for them, because they’re working.”

That would be great news for the Clemson team as Deshaun Watson and Carlos Watkins were key components that led to Clemson's second National Championship.
