His Recruiting Story
The Michigan recruitment of Steve Watson was just a quick blip on the recruiting radar screen. The Wolverines offered him in mid-June, he made an unofficial visit to the U-M campus over the Fourth of July weekend, and, as he told GBW on the WTKA Signing Day show, committed on the spot! He'd also had numerous other scholarship offers: from LSU, Oklahoma State, UCLA, Michigan, California, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado State, Iowa State, Washington, San Diego State, Southern Mississippi and Nebraska.

GoBlueWolverine Commentary:
Steve Watson has been around football his entire life. His father, Steve Watson Sr. was a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos from 1979-1987 and joined the Broncos coaching staff in 2001. He is currently their wide receivers coach -- and Steve was a ball-boy for the Broncos as a boy. Being around pros and coaches has been a big plus for Steve -- who is considered a very polished tight end whose strength is his route running. However, is it true that his weakness is speed? Just a minute -- he runs track for Mullen High as well, and has an 11.3 second 100 meters to his credit! Watson is a quiet guy who has avoided talking to the press -- but he may just come in to Ann Arbor and make some noise where it counts -- on the field.
