NoleDigest Update: Elkino Watson

Booker T. Washington Defensive Tackle Elkino Watson camped at Florida State last summer and recently has seen increased interest from Florida State. NoleDigest has an update with the talented linemen from Dade County.

Elkino Watson currently has nine offers including Georgia Tech, Rutgers, USF, and Louisville. After a strong camp performance at FSU and start to his senior year, Watson updates his recruitment,

""It's going pretty good right now. We are 3 and 0. I am doing good, I have 6 sacks in 3 games. I am considering a lot of schools right now, like Marshall, Minnesota and Florida State jumped into the picture."

Watson who has a 3.4 GPA talked about what he is looking for,

"I am looking for a good atmosphere, a good family vibe. I need to feel comfortable like I am home and a good education."

It is the time in the recruiting cycle where players are setting up their official visits,

"I am setting them up soon. Hopefully I am gonna set up a Minnesota visit in the off season and one to Louisville and a couple other visits."

Watson spoke about Florida State,

"I talk to Coach Haggins; he calls me and checks on me every other day. They are big program. They have a lot of eyes; a lot of their games are on TV."

While FSU has not offered yet, Watson appears to be a player who might play his way into one. The 'Noles have two current verbals at DT: Derrick Mitchell and Nile Lawrence-Stample.
