Watkins is a former 4* recruit from DeSoto. Spent his first two years at Notre Dame as a special teams/backup CB before missing his junior season due to injury. Last year, he started all 12 games and had 22 tackles, 7 assists, 8 pass breakups, and 1 interception.
Although West Virginia is the first school to get an official visit from Watkins, he has his eye on a few more schools as well. Nick is a native Texan, and besides the Mountaineers, his list consists of Texas schools.
The SMU Mustangs, Houston Cougars, and TCU Horned Frog are all programs on his list, and they could receive a visit soon.
He wants to make a decision by June 1, so he still has a couple of weeks to make a decision.
