Watson never shies from competition, nor does he mince words when talking about his own performance.
"I did my thing and the coaches loved it," Watson told FOX Sports NEXT on the phone. "I can compete and hang with the best of them."
His humor coming through, he said the linebackers at USC's Rising Stars just couldn't keep up with him.
"It went really great," he said. "The competition was really good."
Watson, a California commit, didn't leave USC with an offer Wednesday, but says if it were up to running backs coach Tommie Robinson, he would've had one yesterday. "He really loves me," Watson said, smiling through the telephone. "He wanted me to stay and hang out, he wants me for sure."
Watson says offensive line assistant James Cregg, in charge of recruiting Centennial, "really wants" him too.
Despite not receiving an offer, the 5-foot-10 185-pound back says he's confident something will come in soon.
Watson admitted he considers himself a solid commitment to Cal, but wants to "see it all and stay open minded" about the process.
