"I've picked up offers from Boston College, Northwestern and Minnesota," said Watkins. "I would get a great education at all of them, and that's what is important. I'm hoping to visit them sometime this spring to see what they are really like."
While all three schools are recruiting the junior as a running back, he says that they've also been talking about other possibilities.
Watkins has also been busy traveling. He visited Ohio State in January, and Illinois, Indiana, Michigan State, Ball State, Washington and Purdue before that. Next up for the junior is a trip to Lexington.
"I'm visiting Kentucky this weekend. I'm excited about meeting the coaching staff and getting an overall view of the university."
