2014 St. Louis (MO) CBC DT Armon Watts got a pretty good wake up call from his high school coach Scott Pingel this morning.
"It was kind of funny because I was sleeping since school is over for me already, and my phone rang about 10:30 this morning and it was my coach at CBC, coach Pingel, and I answered it and he told me that he just got off the phone with Coach Ford and that Missouri had offered me,"said Watts.
The Mizzou offer is the second SEC offer fro Watt, who also hold one from Kentucky. He was happy and a little surprised by the news.
"I love Mizzou. I go there a lot and love the atmosphere and how things are done there. I love how they put defensive linemen in the NFL with guys like Sheldon (Richardson) and Aldon Smith. That's important and makes them stand out. It's good to know that I have the offer from them and they want me. I am also kind glad that I didn't have to get one. To know that they like me and my film enough to offer means a lot."
I asked him about a possible timeline for his commitment?
"I will probably give it to the end of summer before I decide. Maybe by mid-summer. I would like to have it done with before the start of my senior season"
And on possible leaders for him?
"Right now with the whole process and out of the schools that have offered me I would say Missouri and Kentucky are my top two schools," said Watts, adding that his Mom wants him to take an unofficial visit down to Kentucky sometime in the near future to see how things are down there.
