Watson Watches the Bruins

The Corona (Calif.) Centennial running back and Cal commit, Tre Watson, was at the Rose Bowl for UCLA's season opener...

Corona (Calif.) Centennial running back Tre Watson committed to Cal in the spring, but that hasn't stopped schools from recruiting him.

And if he continues to have games like he did in the season opener, things won't quiet down for a long time.

"I ran for 319 yards on 33 carries and five touchdowns," said Watson. "But I have to get better."

The productive and efficient game came in Huskies' 60-42 win over Henderson (Nev.) Liberty, prepping for their matchup against Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure on Saturday.

Last Saturday, fresh off his stellar showing, Watson was at the Rose Bowl for UCLA's season opening win over Nevada.

The Bruins offered Watson after he committed to the Bears, and have been making a big push to get him.

"I got to see the Bruins kill it and I loved it out there," said Watson. "I got to see how the Bruins get down and I love it."

Watson said he's not turned any schools away just yet.

"I'm still staying open minded about the recruiting process and weighing my options," said Watson. "I'm just going to enjoy it and see what happens on National Signing Day. Right now, my main focus is on my season.

But does Watson still consider himself a commit to Cal?

"Yeah, no doubt, I'm still solid," said Watson.

Watson said that a couple of other Pac-12 schools are checking in, with two calling him on Sunday.

"I was on the phone with Utah (on Sunday) and USC wants me to come out to some games so the recruiting process is going great," said Watson.
