"They came to my school a couple of weeks ago," said Brian Watters. "They told me that they wanted me to play safety. They set up [an official visit] almost immediately."
Ball State and Middle Tennessee State are the only schools to officially extend Watters a scholarship offer. However, judging by the vibes he's receiving from the Demon Deacons' coaching staff that could change during his Winston-Salem stay.
Watters, a native of Rome (Ga.), is seeing the most interest for wide receiver, his desired position. However, he isn't against playing some defense.
"I'd really prefer wide receiver, but I'm not scared of playing safety," said Watters. "I played cornerback in ninth and tenth grade and started at safety all year [as a senior]."
Playing all over the field for Rome High School, which ended their season with an 11-2 record, Watters accumulated over 1,400 all-purpose yards and 20 all-purpose touchdowns.
Following his official visit to Chapel Hill, Watters crowned the Tar Heels his leader. Regardless, Watters, who has never been to Wake Forest, is very interested in what he knows about Wake Forest thus far.
"It's a real good academic school," said Watters. "I'm not going to say that their football program is the best, but anyway you can get into the school man, you need to take it. It wouldn't be bad to play football there."
If everything stays on track, Watters is hoping for a mid-January decision.
