Two locked in for Watkins, Pruitt

The highly-touted Dallas (Tx) Bishop Dunne pair will be hitting a pair of Big 12 junior days.

Baylor is the first stop for Jovan Pruitt, a 6-foot-6, 295-pound offensive tackle, and four-star cornerback offer Nick Watkins. The two will be in Waco for junior day Feb. 2.

They will then travel to Texas junior day Feb. 10.

Bishop Dunne head coach Michael Johnson reported Texas head coach Mack Brown and Baylor offensive coordinator Kendal Briles both paid visits to the school this week, and (having already offered Watkins) look to offer Pruitt at or following junior days.

Watkins may also hit Alabama "if he and his family can find time." The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder sits among a plethora of major suitors, ranging from The Tide and LSU to Michigan and Ohio State, Notre Dame, Stanford, Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M. The list goes on- nearing 20, in fact.

Pruitt's recruitment has started slower, nabbing his first and only offer from Colorado State in May. But things are set to take off.

"Texas loves Jovan," Johnson stressed.

And while Pruitt excitedly awaits what the future holds, he admits he is not looking ahead, but keeping his head down and focusing on "what needs to be done" and what he can control. His studies.

"The reason that I don't have that many offers is because my GPA wasn't where it was supposed to be, but I'm really working hard to change that," said Pruitt. "Trust and believe I won't let myself or anyone else down."
