Three-star athlete prospect Greg Watson (5-11, 190, 4.5) from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., lived up to his reputation as an athlete prospect by showing off his versatility at the Inland Empire Combine held at Colton, Calif., high school this past Saturday. The talented Watson also picked up his first offer recently.
"I played defensive back, wide receiver and quarterback," Watson said about his combine experience. "I think I did pretty well."
Watson received his first offer from Oregon.
"Oregon offered me as a defensive back," Watson said. "It feels great to get the first one especially from Oregon it is a very prestigious program."
"It is kind of weird that I was offered as a defensive back because I haven't played the position in high school," Watson said. "Oregon likes the way I run. I would love to play defensive back because I love to hit."
Rancho Cucamonga has had a lot of visitors come by already this spring inquiring about Watson. Schools such as Arizona, Arizona State, Washington State, Air Force, UNLV, Fresno State and Villanova have been on campus showing in interest.
Outside of the Oregon the rest of the pack is recruiting Watson as an athlete. Does Watson have a preference of what position he would like to play on the collegiate level?
"I don't care where I play in college," Watson said. "I just want to get an education paid for and play some college football."
Watkins will be attending the very celebrated Elite 11 camp in Berkeley this Saturday. He is very excited and looking forward to the event.
"It feels great to attend the Elite 11 because (UCLA frosh) Richard Brehaut and (incoming Stanford frosh) Josh Nunes were there last year and they are awesome quarterbacks," Watson said. "So by me being invited, makes me feel like I'm the same caliber as those two fine quarterbacks."
"I have been invited to the B2G Elite camp from June 23rd-26th at Cal Lutheran," Watson said. "I will be attending the camp with my best friend on my football team, Chayz Holt, will also be going and I will room with him."
Watson is a special football player who earned League Player of the Year, Area Player of the Year, CIF Player of the Year and all-state after passing for 2,506 yards and 18 touchdowns. He also added 859 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground. His total offense yards of 3,365 yards was the second most in the state.
