His Recruiting Story
The Michigan recruitment of Steve Watson was just a quick blip on the recruiting radar screen. The Wolverines offered him in mid-June, he made an unofficial visit to the U-M campus over the Fourth of July weekend, and, as he told GBW on the WTKA Signing Day show, committed on the spot! He'd also had numerous other scholarship offers: from LSU, Oklahoma State, UCLA, Michigan, California, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado State, Iowa State, Washington, San Diego State, Southern Mississippi and Nebraska.
Steve Watson has been around football his entire life. His father, Steve Watson Sr. was a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos from 1979-1987 and joined the Broncos coaching staff in 2001. He is currently their wide receivers coach -- and Steve was a ball-boy for the Broncos as a boy. Being around pros and coaches has been a big plus for Steve -- who is considered a very polished tight end whose strength is his route running. However, is it true that his weakness is speed? Just a minute -- he runs track for Mullen High as well, and has an 11.3 second 100 meters to his credit! Watson is a quiet guy who has avoided talking to the press -- but he may just come in to Ann Arbor and make some noise where it counts -- on the field.
