as their #1 future star in college football.

Don't be surprised if Watson is the starting quarterback as a true freshman at Clemson by midseason of this year. Although he was injured in spring football, he made great strides and a fantastic impression on both the coaching staff and his teammates. Cole Stoudt may be the senior, but he does not have Watson's talent. Plus, Stoudt lacks the high-level athleticism that offensive coordinator Chad Morris seeks. Watson has a chance to be special, and from a maturity standpoint he is capable of handling the jump from high school to college with very few growing pains. He's the quarterback of the future of this program and will be charged with continuing its run of double-digit-win seasons and competing for championships.
