The visit the weekend of November 3rd for the Boston College game was Watson's first visit to Wake Forest since his commitment in early June. Watson, who has family in North Carolina, brought his father with him on the trip from the Texas capital city.
"My dad had a real good time," he said. "I loved how well they treated us. There's such a good atmosphere there and the coaches are all good guys who make you feel welcomed. Coach Grobe talked to my father and I for a long time.
"I did have a chance to speak to Coach Duffie, the cornerbacks coach. He's a real loose guy. I can't wait to play under him. A lot of the stuff he does is very similar to what we do at Westwood, so I'm already feeling good about going into a defense I'm comfortable with."
Wake Forest befitted from having the addition of Derrick Jackson on the staff this year. The outside linebackers coach started recruiting Watson while as an assistant coach at Rice and maintained the relationship after moving over to take a position on Jim Grobe's staff.
