The flier you see to the right has caught the eye of the NCAA. The flier is promoting a Christmas party in Florida on December 23rd and it includes Sammy’s brother Jaylen Watkins, who plays at Florida, along with Sammy’s West Virginia’s Brodrick Jenkins and South Florida’s Spencer Boyd as the other host.
This story first popped up because of, what else a tweet. Clemson official Don Munson told a Florida newspaper that Sammy Watkins does not tweet. That is somewhat of a surprise because he has a handle that is updated regularly by someone that sounds a lot like Sammy Watkins. It was mentioned Watkins sister may be handling his feed. Whoever it is, has been acting like he or she was Sammy Watkins all season and no one was disputed it was him.
Watkins name has since been taken off the flier and Clemson has reported the issue to its compliance department. The school does not expect this to affect Watkins elgibility for the Orange Bowl next month.
