Incoming Clemson freshmen quarterback Deshaun Watson should be good to go for spring practice following a 4-6 week rehab for a knee injury he suffered in Gainesville High's loss to Tucker in the Georgia Class 5A semifinals.
As expected, an MRI showed that Watson suffered an MCL sprain. No surgery will be required.
Watson, who is ranked as the nation's top dual-threat quarterback, will enroll at Clemson next month. He will compete for the Tigers' quarterback job with rising senior Cole Stoudt and rising sophomore Chad Kelly during spring drills.
Watson, who entered his senior season as Georgia's all-time leader in passing yardage, finished his career with 13,077 yards passing, more than 3,000 yards rushing, and 218 total touchdowns.
