Imagine what kind of career Deshaun Watson, likely the first quarterback taken in the 2017 NFL draft and perhaps the No. 1 overall pick, might have had if he decided to de-commit from Clemson and sign a letter-of-intent with Auburn back in 2013?
Do the Auburn Tigers reach the national championship game in 2015 instead of the Clemson Tigers? Would Gus Malzahn be on the hot seat this upcoming season?
With Clemson traveling to Auburn this weekend, Watson’s alternate future was revisited in a story written by James Crepea from Al.com. In the story, Watson, who had already committed to Clemson in 2012 when he decided to take a visit to Auburn a few months later, told a reporter about his trip to Auburn that “it was something that I wanted to make sure I was making the right choice.”
Did he make the right choice?
