Rock Hill (SC) TE Asa Watson has been a huge priority for the NC State coaching staff over the last nine months and their hard work paid off Sunday with a commitment.
At 6-4, 200 pounds, Watson had 18 catches for 400 yards as a senior and boasts a ton of upside. After official visits to Duke and Maryland, Watson made a trip to Raleigh this past weekend to check out the Wolfpack and that visit solidified his decision to run with the Pack.
“Yes sir, I committed to State,” said Watson. “It just seemed like everything was right. I talked to the players and really had a good time. Russell (Wilson) was great and he was just a great guy.
“Sterling Lucas was cool too and they just told me how they made their decisions. I went home and prayed about it and talked to my parents. That’s the best place for me and that’s where I’m going.”
Watson boasted offers from Maryland, Duke, Vanderbilt and Boston College in addition to NC State. He is rated a four star prospect and the No. 10 tight end in the nation by Scout.com. Watson was selected as a team captain for his South Carolina squad in this year’s Shrine Bowl. He was recruited by tight end’s coach Jim Bridge.
