What are we recruiting him as? I am gonna assume S since we already have lots of QBs and WRs
I have an MBA...Master at Being Amazing
Illini are the front runners at this point
Who's the source?
he does go on to say he is friends with Snodgrass.
The Ozone, The Buckeye Fans source of timely Ohio State Football, Basketball, Hockey and Baseball information, statistics, rosters, and commentary. fan reactions, recruiting commentary, fan polls, and interviews.
IMO, that has a lot to do with the Illini being one of his first offers. He should have quite a few more in the coming months.
It will be interesting to see where he really wants to line-up in college. Some schools are recruiting him as a QB and some exclusively as a DB. His decision could largely hinge on whether playing QB is that important to him.
Watkins posted this about his visit to Michigan State on his blog on PrepForce.
"I enjoyed our visit to Michigan State for the Notre Dame game. The atmosphere was great. It was nice to get to go out on the field to speak with Coach Dantonio and Coach Tressel. It was also nice to meet Coach Izzo of the basketball Spartans."

I read his interview on lville. He seems pretty high on them.
Another site reporting that we've offered. He has a great highlight video. Seems like he could potentially play on both sides of the ball.
What was the Badger 247 update on him 19 hours ago?
He has MSU listed as warmer! Looks like were the team to beat!
Evan flood had him on a list of possible gets. Actually I think they profiled 5 guys and he was another 5 mentioned at the bottom in kind of like a "also mentioned" section.
What's happened that we got a bump in interest? Just the offer?
He had interest and we offered. He said he was waiting for us to offer. There's more good info in Sean's article yesterday, I would definitely recommend it.
laconophilia is everywhere...
He posted on his prep force blog that he just qualified academically by scoring a 20, which I'm assuming was his ACT.
So is there any reason to wait til 5/1 at this point?
It'd be nice to have him on board by the time visiting picks up for spring ball.
If he scored a 20, then I'm going to guess that grades aren't really a concern. Usually the trouble kids are down in the 13-15 range I think. But I could be off on this.
I'm guessing that 5/1 is a date that him and his family/parents set for him to make sure he wasn't making any brash decisions. If that is the case, then it would be a refreshing change of pace.
He has a 93 ranking, as a 4 star, ranked 119th nationally. Its not just the recognition. I just watched his highlight video. Three observations:
1)There was a guy on the video screaming like crazy. It got weird.
2) He is actually a pretty good quarterback.
3) He broke alot of tackles. Partially because of his speed and elusiveness; and partially because of the level of competition (alot of broken/lazt tackles)
This guy is not a recruit to take lightly.
Northwestern now rated "warmer". intersting.
