Thomasville Twins Talk Recruiting

Katrell Watters, from 4A runner-up Thomasville, (Ala.), is a solid prospect for the class of 2008. Watters is a 6-0, 225-pound middle linebacker who has a twin (Jarrell Watters, 6-0, 225) who plays beside him for the Thomasville defense. The identical twins talk of an unofficial visit and the schools showing interest.

"I am hearing from Alabama, LSU and Southern Miss," Katrell Watters said. "Alabama is my favorite. I have been rooting for Alabama all my life. Everybody in my family goes for Alabama."

"I know Anthony Madison (former Alabama and Thomasville star) real well. He tells me about how things are up there. It seems like a great place to play."

Katrell's twin talked about the schools showing interest in his talent.

"Alabama and LSU are sending me stuff," Jarrell Watters said. "They want me as a linebacker. I like Alabama, LSU, Auburn and UAB."

Both players ventured to Tuscaloosa February 24 for Alabama's Junior Day.

"It was great," Katrell said. "I liked the atmosphere up there. It was good to meet the coaches. Just being up there was fun. I talked to coach [Ron] Middleton and coach [Kevin] Steele about playing there. They want to look at my tape and will let me know something soon."

Jarrell talked about Junior Day at the Capstone as well.

"It was real smooth," he said. "The coaches and all the players were real nice. I talked to coach [Ron] Middleton. He was real cool and let me know about Alabama."

Jarrell talked about the difference in his brother's style of play on the gridiron.

"We both are so different," he said. "I freelance more. He goes full speed straight to the play. He has a knack for being around the ball a lot."

"We want to stay together in college," Jarrell added.
