“I’m very excited that Spring ball is here,” Deiontae Watts said. “I’m looking forward to seeing how coaches run their practices. I want to visit Baylor, Texas A&M, Texas, SMU and Oklahoma to watch their Spring practices. I am looking forward to meeting new coaches and players to build relationships with them to help me make my decision when it comes to committing to a school.”
Watts is excited about his last year of high school football with his Plano East teammates.
“I’m looking forward to having a great season and hopefully making it to state,” Watts said.
Watts would like to get to know Charlie Strong and the rest of the coaching staff a little better, but he does keep in contact with the Longhorns.
“My relationship between the coaches and I is great,” Watts said. “We keep in contact with each other which I think is awesome.”
Watts is a big interior defensive line prospect who's potentially scheme-versatile on the Power Five conference level. Big frame and a good size to match. Powerful at the point of attack. Shows ability to back up traffic and plug gaps. Can take on blockers and still affect opponents' run game. Strong hands aid in consistent disengaging ability and sure tackling. Sometimes can collapse the pocket as interior pass-rusher. At times, shows excellent get-off at the snap, but inconsistent in that aspect of his game for now. Can improve body control, especially when taking contact. Possibly scheme-versatile enough to play in an even or odd front. Overall a big, physical interior talent who projects to the P5 level. - Gabe Brooksnull
