Anderson's publicist, however, tells TMZ Sports that Anderson and Gilberry were trying to prevent Watson from a confrontation with Crimson Tide fans.
"Bottom line, Ryan didn't ask Deshaun to leave", Broderick said, "and they have since talked after the incident".
Another video posted later Friday by @BarstoolCLemson shows Anderson and Wallace Gilberry confronting Watson.
Watson, who is projected as a first round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, completed 36-of-56 passes for 420 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the January 9 title game. Watson also completed 67.4% of his passes in his collegiate career.
Former Tigers quarterback Deshaun Watson found that out the hard way recently when he made a decision to go to a bar adjacent to the Crimson Tide campus.
You can hear someone else (presumably in Watson's party) say, "we're leaving" and a waitress saying, "y'all have a great day, sorry about that".
The patron who shot one of the videos declined comment when contacted by ESPN.
The pub posted a Facebook statement apologizing for Watson's mistreatment.
For the record, it's unknown why Watson was in a Tuscaloosa bar.
Later, Watson was at Rounders, another popular Tuscaloosa bar among Alabama students, where he didn't appear to have any issues.
Clemson defeated Alabama, 35-31, in this year's College Football Playoff National Championship Game.
Watson is now preparing for the NFL Draft and will likely be a first-round selection and maybe even a top-10 pick.
