OT Devon Watkis (6'8 285), from Longwood HS in Long Island, visited Rutgers last week for their Junior Day. He had this to say about the event-"I liked it. It was really nice. They have some great coaches".
Watkis, who describes his foot speed for his size as his greatest strength, is
a 3-star athlete for Longwood. In football, he plays OT and earned all-district
honors. He was one of the better players on his basketball team. And currently
is involved in track, where he throws the shot put and discus. "Right now
I am just working on my strength and explosiveness. I spend a lot of time working
out and performing in track. My track coach is also one of the football coaches.
So we focus on both things right now".
Watkis is still awaiting his first Division 1 offer. He is receiving interest
from numerous top programs, including Rutgers, UConn, Michigan and Virginia. As
aforementioned, he has visited Rutgers. He will next visit UConn on April 28th.
He is considering attending the Nike and Scout.com combines. He will camp at Rutgers
this summer and is contemplating camping at UConn and/or Boston College.
Watkis currently maintains a 3.0 GPA and will take the SAT for the first time
on May 5th.
Big Long Islander enjoys Rutgers.
