College Football Recruiting: Clemson Tigers Find Next Tajh Boyd, Sammy Watkins Duo

Daniel Shirey – USA TODAY Sports

In college football, it’s all about reloading on the recruiting trail when your stars eventually leave the program. For the Clemson Tigers, they are working diligently to make sure their offense will be in good hands for years to come. With the imminent departure of quarterback Tajh Boyd and wide receiver Sammy Watkins, Dabo Swinney is bringing in the next batch of offensive playmakers in his 2014 recruiting class.

Clemson added the verbal commitment of the No. 1 dual threat quarterback in the 2014 class, Deshaun Watson, back in February and added the No. 12 wide receiver in the class Demarre Kitt earlier this week. The pair of them should prove to be the playmakers that the Tigers need to continue their top-ranking offensive attack for years to come. Even Kitt sees their potential, saying he hopes that he and Watson will “replace Sammy Watkins and Tajh Boyd and break records” while at Clemson.

Boyd and Watkins proved to be a dynamic duo during the 2011 season when Watkins was just a freshman and look to rekindle their chemistry in 2013 as the Tigers look to take a shot at a BCS National Championship run. Swinney is looking to build the Tigers into a perennial power in the ACC and adding a pair of playmakers like Watson and Kitt will go a long way in securing that future.

The future looks to be bright for the Clemson Tigers with talent coming in like Watson and Kitt to be the next Boyd and Watkins combination. Will they keep the Tigers on top of the ACC?
