Deshaun Watson not your average 30-30 man

Deshaun Watson had four of his 35 touchdowns in a 45-40 loss to Alabama in the national title game.

This is not the time of year when college quarterbacks usually make news. And when they do, it usually isn't good. That is not the case for Clemson's Deshaun Watson. The 6-foot-2 rising junior, who completed 35 touchdown passes to lead the Tigers to a 14-1 record and the national title game this past season, also just wrapped up 37 hours of course work. In one academic year.

The tweet from longtime Clemson football Sports Information Director Tim Bourret brings attention to a very impressive accomplishment. At this pace, Watson, a communications major, could be on track to graduate in three years.

Just in time for the 2017 NFL Draft.
