    By Simmons....100% committed to Clemson, but says he's going to try and visit Ohio State this summer.

    We can probably drop the 'soft' part.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Talk about a player that will clearly signal his interest if/when he actually takes a visit. Watson is a perfect example of that. Sure hope he has interest in checking out C-Bus. It's a long way till Feb.

    I get the feeling that this is the last ditch effort by the staff to see if they can get the kid interested again. I doubt this will do any good towards this goal though.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    The interest in Ohio State is obviously there whether he visits or not. The Clemson staff is also obviously putting pressure on him not to visit other schools, especially Ohio State, which is where I think the dilemma is arrising.

    My guess at the timeline:

    Watson announces he will take visits over the summer.

    Clemson contacts Watson and puts pressure on him not to take those visits in one way or another (possibly to the point of threatening to pull his scholarship).

    Watson announces his recruitment is over.

    Watson meets with Ohio State staff.

    Many, many months until signing day...

    The pitch for Urban seems fairly simple during this meeting:

    "If Clemson truly wants you as their quarterback there is no way they will pull your scholarship for taking visits. If they do pull your scholarship obviously they aren't as invested in you as they say they are. Visiting Ohio State is a win win for you. When you visit you will have all of the information you need to decide between Ohio State and Clemson. If Clemson pulls your scholarship they've made the decision for you because they failed to make you a priority and you will fall in love with Ohio State when you visit. Oh, and have I mentioned lately that Chad Morris is a top candidate to take a HC job far, far away from Clemson? National Championship, Alex Smith Tim Tebow first round draft pick and so on..."

    Or something along those lines.

    I think Urban has this whole "flipping" thing well in hand at this point.

    Either way- DeShaun Watson? Kyle Allen?

    Yeah, we're in good shape recruiting QBs right now.
