Clemson Tigers star quarterback Deshaun Watson has his team tied for the lead in the national championship game. Watson has made big plays with his arm and legs throughout the first half, which has led to some very high praise throughout the football world.
One of the people on social media praising the sophomore signal-caller is former Texas Longhorns star Kenny Vacarro.
Vaccarro compared Watson to a quarterback he is very familiar with.
Watson remind me of that legend from UT

Obviously, Vacarro is talking about former Longhorns’ superstar quarterback Vince Young.
Young heroically led the Longhorns to a championship win in the Rose Bowl against the USC Trojans 10 years ago. Watson is a dual-threat quarterback as well and there is no doubt that the future is bright for him. Comparing the two is very fair and they have a lot in common.
It will be interesting to see if Watson can come up with a magical performance of his own to lead the Tigers to victory.
