Watts commits to Idaho
"Western Michigan, Nevada, Grambling and Howard all were recruiting me, but on my trip, I knew it was the best place for me and that's why I committed."
As would be expected, the Vandal coaches were very excited to get a rangy wideout who posted solid numbers in 2011 -- 34 receptions, 645 yards and nine interceptions -- and he said they told him how they want to use him in their offense.
"They want me at the 'X' spot where I can get deep on defenders and stretch the field," Watts noted. "I played the 'X' in our offense, so it should be a pretty easy transition for me."
Watts enjoyed a solid prep career at New Waverly (Tx.) High School and enrolled at Kilgore College after failing to qualify for a D-1 scholarship.
After spending a year with the Rangers, Watts headed west to get a fresh start and worked very hard on some of the finer points of playing the wide receiver position.
"I worked really hard this past year on my 'get off' and my hand-eye coordination," Watts said. "I also wanted to be stronger in the air and able to go up and get the ball."
Watts will sign his Letter-of-Intent on February 1st (Wednesday) and he will have three years to play two once he arrives on Moscow this summer.
