Watson tweeted about playing in the national title game in high school

  Deshaun Watson has thrown for 3,699 yards and 31 touchdowns this season.

For Clemson QB Deshaun Watson, all of this was destiny, apparently.

On Monday night, Watson will lead the Tigers into the College Football Playoff national championship game against Alabama. Three years ago, when he was a junior in high school, Watson tweeted about himself envisioning this very moment.

If Watson can predict the future, perhaps he can beat the Crimson Tide. But that will be no easy task. Nick Saban’s bunch hasn’t lost since a Week 3 hiccup against Ole Miss.
