07:13 AM ET 05.13 | As with most elite recruits, Deshaun Watson's early commitment to Clemson hasn't kept other big time programs from knocking on the door of what many consider to be the best quarterback of his class. The sleepy city of Gainesville, located 50 miles northeast of Atlanta, has been one of the state's most popular stops for college scouts this spring: Alabama, Ohio State, LSU, Auburn, Tennessee, Cal, Ole Miss, UGA, Louisville, Oregon -- of course, Clemson. ... Alabama is Watson's most recent suitor, extending a scholarship offer last week. "They kind of told me two weeks ago," Watson said. ... On Friday, Watson simply said that he's "100-percent committed" to Clemson.

I dunno...if I'm a HS QB and looking at a school that already has 6 QB's....I would rather go somewhere else, don't care how good I think I am.

Agreed. Go find a team with a QB need and a good QB coach/OC, and compete there.
