Sounds to be like he wants to win a Natty...

before he leaves Clemson.

I support your decision either way.

Go DW4! Go Tigers!

As much as I'd love to have him for four years


Nov 19, 2016, 11:29 PM

We've built our recruiting strategy around telling 4 and 5 star players they can play early because we send talent to the NFL in three years. Hopefully the staff has kept our QB recruits and their families in the loop if this is a real possibility

Coaches would be thrilled if the best qb on the country decided to stay another year. Don't see it happening though.

"We've built our recruiting strategy around telling 4 and 5 star players they can play early because we send talent to the NFL in three years"

Really???

Most recruits I hear come to Clemson b/c they say the coaches talk more to them about developing into a person more than anything else. Didn't CJ say the reason he came to Clemson was that Dabo didn't talk football to him at all?

flag link

That's what people say and should say


Nov 19, 2016, 11:45 PM

And you would also know 3 year-and-out to NFL would be the primary goal to all the top-notch recruits. So I'm not particularly happy to DW's reture, although it won't be a bad thing for sure.

Ok, saying that the ability to make the NFL in 3 years

Nov 19, 2016, 11:52 PM

was probably an overstatement of the strategy that our coaches use to recruit players to Clemson. You are correct in saying that we sell educational opportunity, family atmosphere and the Clemson experience over everything else.

The point I should have tried to make was that these kids aren't stupid. When they see numerous players enter the draft after three years and do well in the league, they can't help but imagine having the same kind of success. One path to that success is the knowledge that there will be room on the field for them sooner rather than later if they come our way. While it's not the main thing, I think that is one reason we are signing more highly recruited players than ever.

Very true. ...

Nov 20, 2016, 1:03 AM

... having Watson come back would be great for "next year" but we probably lose a top QB off the team and/or recruit.

We'd be trading the future for the right now.

Really a pretty good situation either way.

Re: Very true. ...


Nov 20, 2016, 9:39 AM

Watson coming back would actually be good for recruiting. If Hunter Johnson comes in and win the job as a true freshman Trevor Lawrence might eliminate Clemson from consideration. If DW stays his senior year that means that job will be wide open in 2018 and Clemson could potentially end up with Johnson and Lawrence.

I notice most of the post about recruits never mention Chase Brice 2017 commit from Grayson High school. Grayson is a 7A school in Georgia. Ranked number one in the state and ranked 6 in the nation. Chase is a four year started with 25 TD passes and 2300 yards passing and only 2 int this year. 6'3" 210 pounds with a cannon for an arm. He would have a lot more passing yards except his team has had 9 running clocks in the 2nd half. Check him out and I think you will be excited about this 4 Star recruit. Same school as Gallman, Schuessler an Ryan Carter are from

I've been thinking that he should do that. He needs to work out the interception problem. If he is able to to do that, he he could be an early first round draft choice and raise his worth immensely!

Next year is a QB heavy draft, he'd go higher this year. As great as it would be to have him next season I'd be stunned if it actually happened.

Re: FB Update: Watson leaves the door open for returning to Clemson next season


Nov 20, 2016, 5:02 AM

I feel Watson is insured but it is too much of a risk of injuries coming back another year. He needs to get paid assuming is a 1st round draft pick. If he could slip to the 2nd or third round, he might consider another year. He would be surrounded by a lot of talent and would have another shot at Heisman and no telling how many Clemson/Acc/NCAA records he would own.

I just thing it is in his best interest to go to the pros especially after the MCL issue in his freshman year.

I think He Actually Needs Another Year To Develope


Nov 20, 2016, 6:00 AM

He is the best QB, but this year he has shown he still needs work in the passing game reading certain types of defenses. He won't be running a lot in the NFL and his arm and decision making is a need.

Also, the potential of him going the the Brown and a short career has to be weighing heavily on him.


I know he needs the money to take care of his mom and I support whatever he does. I also wan't him to have a great NFL career for many years.

Don't think it would be worth the risk for him


Nov 20, 2016, 8:29 AM

I definitely think this season has hurt his chances at being the top overall pick and probably caused him to slide towards middle of first round, with the way good defensive players have baited him into throwing some terrible interceptions (which is what ALL NFL defensive players will be able to do). His added weight seems to have hurt his scrambling ability some, but an NFL team wouldn't want him running anyway (kind of like Donovan McNabb learned quickly in Philly).

With the short lifespan of an NFL career and risk of an injury, DW would be better served to leave after this season and let his NFL team teach him whatever he might need to work on one more season in college, plus if he's not ready to be the starter, he'll get much better experience coming in second string against NFL defenses. Charlie Whitehurst has had a well paid long and healthy career as a backup most of the time. Something to be said about a competitor that wants to play, but also something to be said about a smart businessman that wants to have a long happy family life, too.

Whatever he decides, Clemson will be a better program in the future either way!
Thanks DW for a great career so far - let's bring home a natty this season.
