Record-setting receiver Sammy Watkins knew before the season began it would likely be his last at Clemson.
Watkins announced earlier this week he's giving up his senior season to enter the NFL draft. He stopped back on campus for this weekend's football banquet before heading off to train in Tampa, Fla., for his expected invite to the NFL combine.
Watkins said Friday he talked with his coaches before the year started about returning to his freshman numbers that put him on the AP All-America team. Watkins caught 101 passes for 1,464 yards this season, both Clemson single-season records.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound junior has been considered the top receiving NFL prospect by several draft analysts.
Watkins understood what was ahead and prepared himself to finish college ball with a flourish.
