View Full Profile was ranked the #1 quarterback in the ACC on Monday morning according to Athlon Sports.
"Injuries derailed Watson’s freshman season, but all signs point to a full recovery and a huge performance in 2015," Athlon Sports said. "Watson was regarded as one of the top quarterback recruits in the 2014 signing class and threw for 1,466 yards and 14 scores in eight appearances. He also added 200 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. Clemson won’t have Chad Morris calling the shots in 2015, but this offense shouldn’t miss much of a beat with Watson at the controls."
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. Another superlative is that he had a nation's best 10.7 yards per pass attempt.
Watson has been impressive since the beginning of fall camp.
Here is the full ranked list of returning quarterbacks in the ACC in the article: Deshaun Watson (#1), Brad Kaaya (#2), Justin Thomas (#3), Marquise Williams (#4), Jacoby Brissett (#5), Everett Golson (#6), Chad Voytik (#7), Reggie Bonnafon (#8), Michael Brewer (#9), Thomas Sirk (#10), Terrel Hunt (#11), Mat Johns (#12), John Wolford (#13) and Darius Wade (#14).
