Clemson in the Mix


The Tigers have a knack for consistently bringing in big name running backs and quarterbacks. But what is vital to helping those players succeed is a great offensive line and the Clemson coaching staff has been working hard to bring in some big names offensive lineman.

One of those linemen is Watts Dantzler a 6’7” 315 lb. offensive tackle from Dalton, Georgia.
Watts is a coveted recruit and already posses over 15 scholarships. Coach Napier and Coach Pearman are trying to convince him to become a Tiger. They have been talking to Watts on a weekly basis, “they are looking to pick up some top offensive tackles and they have told me that they really want me to play for them.”

Right now Watts’ top schools are Auburn, Alabama, Georgia and Vanderbilt.

“Clemson is still in the mix and I want to go watch a game or take an official visit next year,” said Dantzler.

Watts says that he has like a lot of the schools that he has visited and could see himself fitting in at a lot of different places but a few things stood out with Clemson.

“The whole atmosphere there is really great and it’s a cool town, they have a great stadium, and it just seems like a fun place,” said Dantzler.

Watts wants to pick his school around his birthday in November or at least be down to his top 2.

For now he is enjoying being down with school and is getting ready for summer workouts which start this Tuesday.
