Clemson DT to return for senior season

Clemson redshirt junior defensive tackle Carlos Watkins tells ESPN he will return to school for his senior season.

"Getting my degree is very important to me and I also feel as if I can improve on the field as well," Watkins told ESPN's Joe Schad.

Watkins will help anchor a strong Clemson defensive tackle position with Christian Wilkins, Scott Pagano, Jabril Robinson, Dexter Lawrence and others.

For the season, he had 67 tackles, 3.5 sacks and 8 tackles for loss and was the 8th leading tackler for Clemson at his nose guard position. After the regular season, he was named First-team All-ACC by the media.

He had two tackles including a tackle for loss in the National Championship game against Alabama.
