Seth Watts had an impressive junior season where he graded out at 88.6 percent along the line and recorded 149 knock-down blocks. Schools have taken notice. "Georgia, Stanford, Florida State, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Clemson, Duke, East Carolina, Louisville and Maryland have offered," said Watts.
Watts says he grew up a Notre Dame fan and they have been in contact with him. "I always liked them and watched them. They were my team and I read all about their history. Once Mark Richt became coach at Georgia, I started watching them too. I started liking Georgia quite a bit so both were probably my favorite teams."
The Irish have been in contact with Watts but no offer yet. "Their coach came by my school and I talked to him. He said they would recruit me. I get mail from them but no offer yet."
The Georgia prospect says he is very interested in Notre Dame. "Of course I'm interested. I grew up liking them. Their history is amazing and it's a good team and program every year. I hope they recruit me."
Watts says he probably won't attend camps this summer. "I might go to a 1-day camp that is local so I don't have to miss time with my team. I might go to Georgia for a day camp but my team is very focused. We should be very good next year and we work out all the time together. I just want to prepare for my senior season."
Academics will be a big part of Watts decision. "Academics will be really big. I want a school that is noted for academics. I also want to see how the coaches interact with the players. The people will be important and how I fit in with them."
Watts says he is going to take his time with his decision. "I am going to look at everything about a school. I will take my visits. I might not take all five but I will take some. I will take them after my season is finished."
Does Watts have a top 5? "I'm open to anyone right now but Georgia, Auburn, Florida State, Stanford and Notre Dame are the schools that I like right now."
Comments. The Irish can get into this race with an offer. I always find it interesting when the in-state schools offer. They usually know the player best. If the Irish offer, I expect Watts to become very interested in Notre Dame. I would say Georgia is the clear leader for him right now.
