Another QB interested in Alabama

Posted by JAMES JONES on May 14, 2013 

The battle to replace quarterback A.J. McCarron at Alabama in 2014 may have gotten interesting.

DeShaun Watson, a five-star recruit from Gainesville, Ga. and Clemson commit, was offered by the Crimson Tide (13-1).

Watson, though, still plans to sign with the Tigers and enroll in January after Tahj Boyd leaves for the NFL.

"You know, it's a big thing getting offered by the national champs," Watson told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. "It's pretty cool getting to talk to the quarterbacks coach a little bit and see how they run things. He knows I'm committed to Clemson. He's like 'If anything happens, they want to be right behind (Clemson).'"
