Steve Watson Profile
Denver (Colo.) Mullen tight end Steve Watson (6-4, 240) has been quietly racking up numerous offers, from around the country, and more could be on the horizon.
"I have 16 offers but I'm not ready to narrow it down to a top five," Watson said. "There are some other schools who haven't offered me that I like. I'm going to start narrowing it down in the next couple of months."
Schools that have offered Watson include Michigan, California, UCLA Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Colorado, San Diego State, Boise State, Washington, Washington State, Arizona and Arizona State.
"I really like USC, too, and I'm hoping that I get an offer from them. I took a trip out there in June to their Skills Camp and did pretty well. They said that they want to watch my first three games before they offer me," said Watson.
While he didn't name a leader, Watson did say that Michigan, Cal, Nebraska and UCLA are a few of the schools who have offered that Watson likes, along with Colorado. "There are times when I want to leave the state, and other times I want to stay in the state," said Watson.
Watson's father, Steve Sr., played wide receiver for the Denver Broncos for nine seasons and has been on the Broncos coaching staff for the past five years. He was a defensive assistant for Denver in 2001 and 2002. Then in 2003, he moved to the offensive side of the ball to become Denver's receivers coach when Karl Dorrell left Denver for UCLA, which is Watson's tie to the Bruins (he took an unofficial trip to UCLA at the same he was in town for the USC camp).
Watson said no immediate plans were in place to make his decision. "I'm going to visit some more schools (unofficially) and I want to take some official trips," said Watson. "Like I said, I want to start narrowing it down in the next couple of months and by the time the season starts, I should know my top five."
During his junior season, Watson was an all-league selection and was a part of Mullen's state runner-up squad.
Academically, Watson has a 3.2 GPA and said that he received a qualifying SAT score.
