Sammy Watkins won’t start (but will play) against Wake Forest

It’s been somewhat of a quiet season for Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkinsespecially given his breakout freshman campaign in 2011.

Watkins sat out the first two games of the season due to a suspension and missed another game because of an illness. In all, he’s third on the team in receiving yards and has zero receiving touchdowns.

He won’t get one tonight, either — at least not right away. A Clemson spokesperson confirmed to multiple media outlets that Watkins will not start, but will play, against the Demon Deacons because he was late to a Wednesday meeting.

Watkins had a slow game against Wake Forest last year — at least by his All-American standards — catching five passes for 62 yards.

    It’s amazing how much more accountability and integrity the Clemson football program has compared to that of the University of South Carolina.
