With more than eight months to go before Watson can enroll early, his recruitment is hardly over. Since committing to Clemson, Watson has made unofficial visits to Auburn, Florida and Florida State as well as visits to nearby Georgia on three consecutive weekends earlier this year. He admits there is a strong push from the community to play up the road in Athens, Ga.
"I have fans in my community pulling me to Georgia every day," Watson said. "The fan support for Georgia is big around this area, and they are in my ear all of the time. It is tough sometimes and they joke about it from time to time, but they all know Clemson is a good school and they know my situation. If I go to Clemson, I know most of them will support me in my decision.
