"It is still Kentucky and North Carolina," Watson said. "We sent out some game tapes to coaches and they liked what they saw. They want to wait until the Shrine Bowl and see how I practice then and then we will talk from then on out."
Watson is looking hard at the two offering schools, and even had a recent in-home visit with North Carolina coach Andre Powell, which Watson said went well. He also set up his first official visit.
"I know I will be taking an official visit to North Carolina the 13th and 14th of January," Watson said. "I will look at how the campus is, the dorm rooms, I know that the education is good there, and I am just looking to have a good visit. I don't really know what to expect."
Not knowing what to expect is the same way the college coaches feel about Watson, who at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, is stuck between positions.
"Some are talking about outside linebacker, some are saying defensive end, I just want to play any place on the defensive side of the ball," Watson said. "Kentucky and North Carolina don't know, I can play a numerous places for them, they just want to see when I get there when I fit in."
South Aiken finished up at 7-4 and lost in the first round of the playoffs to Aiken.
