It's easy to be overlooked from college scouts when star linebacker Toryan Smith who has over 30 offers goes to your school, but teammate Brian Watters of Rome, Ga. is seeing his share of interest too. Check out who the 6-foot-3, 185-pounder with 4.4-second speed has gotten offers from and who he's considering?
"Right now I have two offers from Ball State and Middle Tennessee State, but South Carolina has been hard on me recently and said if I send tape I'll get an offer. I just sent out the film," he said. "I like South Carolina a whole lot and if they offer they'll be my number one. They want me to come in and play receiver for them. I like that Steve Spurrier is there and the fact that they throw the ball a lot. I want to be able to go up and get it and I like Spurrier as a head coach."
Currently the athlete has received interest from Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and Wake Forest.
"I like Tennessee because they have a winning tradition and usually have pretty good receivers," he said. "The winning for them makes me a lot more interested."
Recently Watters took in the Georgia-South Carolina game.
"It was really good, I thought South Carolina should have won, but Georgia is a hard-nosed team and they played well," he said. "I watched both teams since they are recruiting me and I saw that the Georgia defense is really good and aggressive. Meanwhile, South Carolina passed the ball a lot. I pictured myself out there and I know I can do it."
The Rome prospect isn't totally sure about official visits yet.
"If no one else offers then I'll surely be going to Ball State and Middle Tennessee State, but I know South Carolina wants me and Toryan to come down for an official. Those are the three visits I'm looking at right now," he said. "I'd love to take one to Tennessee, maybe Georgia and Alabama. I'm not sure if I'll do all five visits during or after the season."
As for a decision Watters expects to decide sometime in December.
"I'm not going to wait until the last minute. I want to wait a little while to see what comes in before making a decision."
Rome is off to a 4-0 start as Watters is at the helm.
"I've run for 300 yards and passed for 300 yards and have 11 total touchdowns. I also got an interception and 30 tackles," he said. "I feel like I can lead this team and I can tell I've gotten stronger and faster since last year. My moves and field vision are a lot better too. This is my first year playing defense and I love it. I'm the type of guy that'll try to make the big hit and I like doing it."
