Watson will be a junior at Clemson during 2016 season

Athlon Sports released its very early College Football Top 25 Poll for 2016 on Wednesday morning and had Clemson ranked #2 overall behind only Alabama.

"Quarterback Deshaun Watson returns for another run at the Heisman Trophy in 2016, and the junior has a strong supporting cast in place, including left tackle Mitch Hyatt and standout receiver Artavis Scott," Athlon Sports said. "The receiving corps should receive a boost with the return of Mike Williams (57 receptions in 2014), who missed nearly all of 2015 due to a neck injury."

Clemson fans should be energized for the future of their football program because next year appears to be just as exhilarating as 2015.

Athlon Sports' Top 25 Poll for 2016:

1. Alabama
2. Clemson
3. Oklahoma
4. Ohio State
5. Florida State
6. Notre Dame
7. Michigan
8. Tennessee
9. LSU
10. Baylor
11. Michigan State
12. Stanford
13. Ole Miss
14. Oklahoma State
15. Houston
16. USC
17. Iowa
18. North Carolina
19. Washington
20. Georgia
21. TCU
22. Louisville
23. Washington State
24. Oregon
25. Florida

Other teams to watch according to Athlon Sports: Arkansas, Auburn, Boise State, Miami, Northwestern, South Florida, Texas A&M, UCLA, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin.
