Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris talks with Clemson football quarterback prospect Deshaun Watson during the Tigers' game against Miami.

Deshaun Watson's last stop before enrolling at Clemson on Jan. 5 will be the Under Armour All-American Game at Tampa; but because of his knee injury, he won't be playing in the all-star contest.

Watson suffered a sprained MCL during Gainesville High's final game - a playoff loss to Tucker in the Georgia state semfinals.

An MRI last week confirmed the original diagnosis.

Watson will wear a brace on his knee and will have physical therapy for the next six weeks. He's expected to be fully recovered in time for spring practice at Clemson.

Despite the injury, Watson will travel to Tampa for the Under Armour game and participate in game-related activities.

Watson is ranked as the nation's No. 1 prep quarterback by ESPN.

Clemson Recruiting Class Ranked 14th: Clemson's 17-man list of commitments for 2014 is ranked 14th nationally by ESPN, and is rated fourth among schools with 17 or fewer commitments.

Alabama (23) tops the list, followed by Tennessee (33), Miami (29), Texas A&M (19), Ohio State (19), Florida State (26), Georgia (16), Florida (19), Notre Dame (23), Michigan (16), LSU (16), Texas (23), Auburn (20), Clemson (17) and Mississippi (25).

Top 2015 Receiver Again Up For Grabs: George Campbell, the nation's top-ranked 2015 wide receiver who was heavily recruited by Clemson before committing to Michigan, has de-committed from the Wolverines and reopened his recruiting.

Campbell is the teammate of incoming Clemson receiver Artavis Scott at East Lake High in Tarpon Springs, Fla. Clemson, Florida and Florida State were considered among the leaders for Campbell before he committed to Michigan. He has offers from most of the nation's top programs.

Florida OL Picks Gators Over Tigers, Vols: David Sharpe, the state of Florida's top-rated prospect for 2014, has announced his commitment to Florida over Clemson and Tennessee.

Sharpe, who is from Providence High in Jacksonville, is rated as the nation's No. 2 offensive tackle by both ESPN and 247Sports.

A long time ago was coming back home form somewhere and was in some Podunk state and had stopped to eat lunch. I had on a Clemosn shirt and there was this high school aged girl in the diner that came up to me and said, "Oh, I love Clemson". I asked her was she a student there are planning on going to Clemson. She said no I never heard of them until about a month ago and saw them on TV and loved the orange and the Tiger Paw on the helmets. Getting a commitment from a high school junior is about like that girl committing to Clemson.
