Two more Tigers were named to the national Top 25 list - defensive end Shaq Lawson was ranked #6 and defensive back MacKensie Alexander was ranked #12.
"Clemson has won at least 10 games in each of the last four seasons and has a good shot at extending that streak to five in 2015," Athlon Sports wrote about Clemson's future.
The Tigers have a lot of excitement moving forward with Watson leading the charge. "Watson is the biggest reason for optimism and potential at contending for the ACC Championship, as the sophomore is expected to be at full strength in his recovery from a torn ACL by the season opener." The Georgia native ranked as the No. 41 recruit in the 2014 signing class and completed 93 of 137 passes for 1,466 yards and 14 scores in his debut. Watson also rushed for 200 yards and five scores last season. The departure of coordinator Chad Morris was a big loss for Clemson, but with Watson’s return and a talented group of skill players, the Tigers will be among the ACC’s best on offense in 2015."
In his rookie campaign, Watson completed 67.9% of his passes for 1,466 yards (10.7 per attempt) with 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions for a tremendous quarterback rating of 188.57.
