EA Watkins (Sanford, Fla./Seminole) is a multi-position recruit looking for a specific scheme when he makes his college choice. For Watkins, it's pretty simple.

"I am looking to play in the spread offense," Watkins said. "That's the offense that fits my skill set."

Watkins, 5-foot-11 and 190-pounds, do a little bit of everything for his high school team, playing quarterback, running back, slot receiver, safety and returns kicks.

"Most schools are recruiting me as a running back and slot guy," Watkins said. "And I will return kicks."

According to Watkins he has scholarship offers from Cincinnati, Memphis (first offer), Purdue, Utah State, Arizona State, Marshall, Louisville (most recent offer), Florida International, South Alabama, and Temple.

"I am going to visit Cincinnati in two weeks and Memphis on July 17th," Watkins said. "Those will be first two visits this summer so I am excited about them. I also want to see Clemson and I may go check out Temple."
