"Clemson will miss Chad Morris calling the plays, but the offense is in good hands with Watson and a deep group of skill players," Athlon Sports blogged. "Watson ranked as the No. 41 recruit in the 2014 247Sports Composite and threw for 1,466 yards and 14 touchdowns in eight appearances. Watson is recovering from a torn ACL but should be at full strength by this fall."
In his rookie campaign, Watson completed 67.9% of his passes for 1,466 yards (10.7 per attempt) with 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions for a tremendous quarterback rating of 188.57. He also had five scores rushing. Another superlative is that he had a nation's best 10.7 yards per pass attempt.
Watson should be ready to go from his torn ACL for workouts during the summer and for fall practice in August.
Here is the full ranked list of returning quarterbacks in the ACC in the article: Deshaun Watson (#1), Brad Kaaya (#2), Justin Thomas (#3), Marquise Williams (#4), Jacoby Brissett (#5), Chad Voytik (#6), Sean Maguire (#7), Reggie Bonnafon (#8) and Michael Brewer (#9), Thomas Sirk (#10), Terrel Hunt (#11), Mat Johns (#12), John Wolford (#13) and Darius Wade (#14).
Note - The top two quarterbacks ranked are sophomores with Watson and Kaaya.
