Watson discusses his accuracy on deep throws

Clemson sophomore quarterback Deshaun Watson was on the ACC media teleconference on Monday and answered a question about his tremendous accuracy on his deep throws this season.

Watson has completed 261 for 371 (70.4%) for 3223 passing yards with 27 touchdowns and ten interceptions on the season.

"Yeah, I did it a lot in high school. I threw a lot of deep balls," Watson said. "Then this summertime just finding the time with those receivers and players, it's really the way you throw it. You've just got to learn how to throw with different timing and the way the touch of the ball and just your eyes follow the receiver."

Watson has worked hard since high school to be able to have touch on his deep throws.

"That's one of the things I've learned through high school," Watson said. "Whenever I throw it, I could control where the ball goes. So I just throw it to the receiver that's open. Most of the time receivers aren't open unless they run right past a guy. But you throw the ball where you want the receiver to go. So that's probably one of the things I did throughout my career."

Watson had 393 yards of total offense and was responsible for four out of the five total touchdowns against the Gamecocks in a 37-32 win on Saturday.

The three rushing touchdowns and 114 rushing yards against South Carolina were both career highs for Watson.
