made his intentions known Wednesday when he verbally pledged to accept a scholarship offer from Clemson University.
The sophomore who set Hall County records last season for yards in a season (4,324) and touchdowns (57) already had an official offer from the Tigers and made the decision with a phone call to Tigers coach Dabo Swinney late in the afternoon.
“Coach Swinney talks about a verbal commitment being like a marriage,” Watson said. “I’m all in with Clemson.”
Watson said he’ll cancel all future visits to other schools.
Watson is the most highly recruited underclassman prospect, but many others across Northeast Georgia are also receiving substantial attention.
