2018 RB Nakia Watson Loves his Unofficial visit to Texas

Local standout running back Nakia Watson made an unofficial this past weekend as the Texas Longhorns hosted the Iowa State Cyclones.

Junior running back Nakia Watson checks in from Austin (Texas) Westlake high school.  He is 6-feet, 215-pounds. 


“When I first arrived I talked to the coach about our game plan for the next five games without Sam Ehlinger,” Nakia Watson said.  “The atmosphere was fun; that's a place I would want to be in the next couple of years. I was able to spend time with the coaching staff.  “They asked me after the game if I think I could hang with the boys on the team, and I said yes sir.”


After a slow start, Watson was impressed with the way the Longhorns played Saturday night.


“What I saw from the players on both sides, they started off slow, but then started executing all the plays,” Watson said.  “The crowd was insane, a type of crowd I would love to play in. I thought the offense did really good once they clicked, the 2nd half offenses, is the Texas offense that I know, and look up to. The best part of the game is watching Foreman run; he's a load. The best part of the trip is going into the locker room after a big win, to see how happy the coaching staff and players are. Texas has a really good locked in program.  I think Coach Strong is a heck of a coach, every player on that team is blessed to have him as a coach.”
