Clemson has had success of late recruiting from Grayson (Ga.) High School outside of Atlanta. Wayne Gallman, Ryan Carter, Chase Brice and Nick Schuessler are just some of the names that are a part of the pipeline of players that have joined the Tigers from the championship caliber high school program.
Clemson is not the only program to reap the rewards from Grayson’s talent, with Georgia, South Carolina and Ole Miss all signing players as a part of their 2017 classes.
2019 defensive back Kenyatta Watson II is another link in the long chain of talent descending from Grayson.
It’s still early in the recruiting process for the Class of 2019, but Watson II already holds offer from big schools like Florida State, Tennessee, Nebraska and LSU. As of now, he said Florida State and Tennessee are recruiting him the hardest and have a lot of great things that stand out to him.
“Yeah how physical there DB’s are and can be and some of the coaches on the staff with players,” he said.
While he hasn’t received an offer from Clemson yet nor talked with the coaches recently, he said he has been busy with camps and workouts.
“I just came home from the Under Armour camp a couple hours ago,” he said.
Watson II said he had a great camp experience learning former players and coaches at the Atlanta based camp.
“It was good really fun being coached by the best like Deion and Michael Fuller,” said Watson II.
Watson II has not visited Clemson yet and is still not sure when he will be coming for a visit, but he did say that a Clemson offer would mean a lot to him.
“I don’t know as of now, for the next couple of days I’m going to be in Miami with friends,” he said. “It would mean a lot especially since I’m closely tied with one of the coaches.”
That coach is defensive back’s coach Mickey Conn, the former head coach at Grayson.
As Watson II still searches for more and more offers, he believes he can bring a lot to the table for the Clemson secondary.
“Well, I’m a versatile DB with good hips and very coachable,” he said.
