Deshaun Watson is gone and so are many others from Clemson football and its national title run in 2016.
But the former Clemson quarterback still expects big things from the Tigers in the coming season, according to TheClemsonInsider.
“I have high expectations for them,” he said. “Of course, another run at an ACC Championship, another run at the College Football Playoff and then we will go from there.”
The Tigers have made the College Football Playoff in both of the playoff’s first two seasons. They also played for national titles in both seasons, advancing through the first weekend of the playoff and into the championship game. Clemson lost to Alabama in 2016, before coming back to beat the Crimson Tide on a last-minute touchdown to cap a national title season in 2016.
The Tigers are left replacing the likes of Watson, who was the No. 12 pick overall by the Houston Texans, as well as running back Wayne Gallman, wide receiver Mike Williams, tight end Jordan Leggett and many more.
Watson was back in Clemson over the weekend for a football camp.
