looks to follow in the mold of Tajh Boyd at Clemson in the coming years.
Tigers coach Dabo Swinney has already told Watson the door is open to become the starting quarterback if he can outwork and outplay Chad Kelly, a highly rated 2012 recruit, and Cole Stoudt. Watson, the Peach State's record-holder in passing yards and touchdowns, believes he has the tools to make an immediate impact.
"I can move in the pocket and can run. I make good decisions and can make any throw," Watson said. "I'm a leader and a team player. I'm a freshman walking into a big-time program like Clemson, and if I take over the job, I've been looking up Tajh Boyd and Jameis Winston to see how they've handled it."
