N.C. State Has Big Plans For Watson

Asa Watson, a highly-rated tight end from Rock Hill High in South Carolina, said Monday that N.C. State’s coaching staff articulated some interesting plans for him before he committed to the Wolfpack.

Watson said that includes playing some of what the staff calls a “Tiger” or “H-back” position that would allow him to split out wide and play all over the field as he matures.

“They really did a good job of explaining how they wanted to use me,” Watson said.

Duke and Maryland were the other finalists for Watson, who’s 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds. He said Rock Hill didn’t throw much, but he had about 18 catches for 400 yards with a touchdown as a senior.

His brother, Ben Watson, played at Duke, transferred to Georgia and now plays for the New England Patriots.

“He always told me that no one can make my decision, that I have to make my decision for myself,” Watson said.--Ken Tysiac

Wow...State must be VERY happy to pick up such an impressive prospect as this two-star recruit. I'm sure Coaches Friedgen and Cutcliffe are crying themselves to sleep tonight.

Actually, Watson is ranked as a 4 star prospect on Scout.com...but regardless of rankings, Tom O'Brien knows talent. Remember, Russell Wilson was a 2 star recruit...hmmm.

That comment doesn't have anything to do with that 41-10 beating. See you in Raleigh and you better not lose to our 2 stars.
