View Full Profile told me after the game that former receiver DeAndre "Nuk" Hopkins has been in and around Clemson this week (the Houston Texans have an off week), and he told his former teammates that one of his records was going to be broken this week at Maryland.
"Yeah, he has been around this week, and I am sure I will see him when we get back, and we will watch this game together," Watkins said. "But I told him that I was going to break one of his records this week, so I am sure we will have that to talk about."
Watkins set a Clemson school record by catching 14 passes Saturday, breaking the record of 13 set by Hopkins last season.
