Watson sets official visit

Wake Forest had quite a month of recruiting in June receiving 10 verbal commitments. Of those 10 players, nine are still solid to Wake Forest with the exception of Alexander Montgomery. One of the earliest June commitments, Brad Watson, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound defensive back from Round Rock (TX) Westwood, has been focused on his senior season, but is ready to make a return visit to Winston-Salem.

"We're five and three and already made the playoffs," said Brad Watson on his Warriors football team. "I play mostly at corner, but I started playing safety when we go to the dime. I've improved on my cover skills and making the big hits. During the summer, my focus was on improving my speed. You can notice that this year. I'm playing the game faster and quicker in change of direction.

"I had close to 40 tackles and two picks [this season]. I'm getting a chance to play wide receiver for us. Having played defensive back for so long, I think it's a big advantage for me at receiver because I know what they're thinking. I'm not sure how many yards I have, but I know I have three touchdowns."

Watson has not been to Wake Forest's campus since the summer, but he stays in close close contact with his recruiting coach, Derrick Jackson, and his future position coach, Tim Duffie.

"Coach Duffie's a great guy," Watson said. "He's loose and I can really talk to him. I think that when I get [to Wake Forest] he's going to coach me up and help me get ready for the next level. I'm going to go into camp next summer at 190 [pounds] ready to play. I'm willing to do whatever the team needs of me. If they need me on the field right away, I'll be ready.

"I've got my official set the weekend they play Boston College. I'm going to go with my dad. I've watched them play here on T.V. They're a young team that's on the rise. They've had some tough losses, but that doesn't bother me because I'm 100-percent Deacon."

Watson will play his final regular season home game Friday night when his team hosts Stony Point. The Westwood Warriors are currently second in the Texas District 16/5A standings.
