HORRIBLE, Reuben Foster nails Deshaun Watson with BRUTAL hit

HORRIBLE, Reuben Foster nails Deshaun Watson with BRUTAL hit

Clemson’s first drive of the National Championship included something neither team probably liked much: one of Alabama’s best players taking a 15-yard personal foul penalty for a high hit on Clemson’s all-world quarterback.

Clemson QB Deshaun Watson made an option shovel pass to his tight end, Jordan Leggett. A split-second after that, Tide linebacker Reuben Foster dove at Watson’s head, making high contact with Watson and drawing the flag.

Foster wasn’t called for targeting on the play, and officials didn’t pause for time to review it. (That doesn’t mean it wasn’t reviewed.) But Watson was a defenseless player, by definition, because he’d just completed the act of throwing a pass. Foster hit him near the head, but a hit like that isn’t typically going to be ruled a targeting foul.
