Nathaniel Watson receives a scholarship offer from Mississippi State after his strong camp showing

Maplesville (AL) High School class of 2018 athlete Nathaniel Watson has an impressive camp at Mississippi State. Impressive enough that an offer was extended after the camp was concluded.

"I received an offer from Mississippi State after the camp," said Watson, who now have five offers. "I also have offers from Auburn, South Alabama, Bowling Green and Troy."

He explained why he chose to participate in the Mississippi State camp.

"I came to the camp because I like Mississippi State's offense," said Watson, who runs a 4.5/4.6 in the forty. "I like to block for my teammates but I also like to catch passes, too. On the defensive side they run around to the ball."

He felt like the camp was very beneficial to him.

"I liked the camp," said the 6-foot-3, 210-pounder. "The coaches were nice. They helped me with everything. They kept me up when I was tired and kept pushing me so I would get better at it."

He is still learning about Mississippi State but there is one thing he definitely knows about them.

"I know that every time they score they have those cowbells ringing," said Watson, who plays on offense and defense for his high school.
