Alex Spence kicked a game-winner, Jae'lon Oglesby and Adam Choice ran wild, and Deshaun Watson went to work on his next 10,000 yards to highlight the performance of 2014 Clemson commitments in last week's high school games.

Spence made three of four field goals, including a 30-yarder to send West Florence's (S.C.) game into overtime against Darlington. He then made a 19-yarder in the second overtime period to give his team a 30-27 victory.

Spence, who was 3-of-3 on PATs, had kicked a 42-yard field goal earlier in the game.

"It's what I practice for every single day to get ready for," Spence told the Florence Morning News. "We came through when it counted."

In Daniel's 49-0 rout of West Oak, Oglesby rushed 10 times for 141 yards and three touchdowns in the first quarter, and then took the rest of the game off as the Lions improved to 4-0. He had touchdown runs of 3, 3 and 61 yards.

In Thomas County Central's (Ga.) 28-21 victory over Tift County, Choice got better and better as the game progressed. Leading his team from the quarterback position, he accounted for 177 of his 249 rushing yards in the second half, including 91 in the fourth quarter. He carried 28 times and had runs of 39 and 25 yards.

Choice also completed six of eight passes for 98 yards, including plays of 35 and 45 yards.

For the season, Choice has 117 carries for 830 yards and six touchdowns on the ground, and is 22-of-38 passing for 379 yards and three touchdowns. He has not been intercepted.

Watson, meanwhile, completed 26 of 32 passes for 399 yards and four touchdowns in Gainesville (Ga.) High's 49-6 win over Apalachee. In his previous game, Watson had become the first player in Georgia high school history to surpass the 10,000-yard mark in career passing.

Artavis Scott caught four passes for 73 yards and a touchdown in East Lake's (Fla.) 61-16 victory over Clearwater.

Linebacker commitment Kendall Joseph had three carries for 44 yards in Belton-Honea Path's 84-0 victory over Palmetto.

Also helping their teams to victories last week Justin Falcinelli (Middletown, Md., 55-13 over Boonsboro); Taylor Hearn (Williston-Elko, S.C, 54-6 over North); and Jabril Robinson (North Brunswick, N.C., 28-14 over West Brunswick).
