The above video features junior season highlights of 2017 defensive tackle Deiontae Watts from Dallas-area Plano East Senior High School, the fourth-largest high school in the state of Texas.

Watts has been on fire on the recruiting trail, picking up a dozen offers within the past few weeks. He's reported 10 offers since Jan. 30, which is the day Baylor offered him.

This week has really been busy for Watts, who has reported offers from TexasOklahoma, and UCLATexas A&MOklahoma State, and Nebraska offered Watts earlier in February, among others.

Watts teams with the No. 1 inside linebacker in the nation, five-star Anthony Hines, to give Plano East a formidable duo up the middle of its defense.

For a closer look at Watts' game, here's his recently updated Scout evaluation:

Watts is a big interior defensive line prospect who's potentially scheme-versatile at the Power Five conference level. Big frame and 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 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 Brooks
