Watson Jr. Plans on Visiting ISU

It's now time for Cyclone fans to burn the name Steve Watson Jr. into their heads. Why? Because Watson is one of the top players in the state of Colorado and with eight offers already, Watson Jr. plans on visiting Iowa State. Check it out here in this CN recruiting report.

"I definitely plan on taking a visit to Ames to check everything out. I really don't know a lot about them at this point. I'm kind of new to this whole recruiting deal," Watson Jr. said. "I think that they're a great team (Iowa State) and I'm definitely interested in going there."


Steve Watson Jr. has the rare combination of size and speed that will make him a threat at the next level. At 6'4, 240 pounds the big TE can also run a 4.7 40. He's a playmaker on defense and he can be used at numerous places on the football field.


He currently has offers from: California, Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Arizona State, Arizona, Colorado State and Iowa State.


"Right now I'm not really sure where I want to commit to but Iowa State is definitely up there with the others," Watson Jr. said.


Watson Jr. also commented on liking UCLA, USC and Florida State, even though the schools haven't offered him at this point.


Watson, like most recruits in the state of Colorado is a target of Tony Alford.


"He's a great guy. I've become pretty good friends with him over this entire process. He's told me a lot about the school," Watson Jr. said.


No matter where this prospect goes, one thing is for sure, he wants to play and he wants to play within his first few years of arriving at a program.


"Whether I'm going to play or not is really what I'm looking for. I don't want to go into a school and not play until my junior year," Watson Jr. said.


Watson Jr. said he's open to red-shirting a year if that's what the coaches want.


In case the name sounds familiar, Watson Jr.'s dad, Steve Watson actually played for the Denver Broncos in the 80's and is now a part of the coaching staff for the Broncos.


If you've followed quotes from Dan McCarney at all in the past few seasons, you'll remember that he loves recruiting coach's sons. That's another big plus for Watson Jr.


As a junior, Watson Jr. was named first team all-conference and honorable mention all-state by the Denver Post.


"My team actually went to the state championship and we lost. The season before we won the state championship so we've been in championship games in back to back seasons."
