was named to SI.com's 2012 Preseason All-America Team as a first team wide receiver. He was the only Tiger to make either the first or second team.

Last year, Watkins gained 2,288 all-purpose yards and ranked fourth in the nation in all-purpose yardage per game. His 2,288 total led the ACC and was the second highest total in Clemson history. Only C.J. Spiller’s 2,680 yards in 2009 is greater.

Watkins 2,288 yards last year set an ACC freshman record, as did his 82 receptions, 12 receiving touchdowns and 1219 receiving yards. His yardage total was a Clemson record regardless of class.

Watkins was named the first-team AP All-America all-purpose player last year, just the fourth true freshman in college football history to be named a first-team AP All-American as a non-kicker.
