Tre Watson was in Northern California this past weekend, he took a trip to Cal and his recruitment could be headed in a certain direction.
The Corona (Calif.) Centennial three-star running back said he loved everything about his Cal visit and a commitment could be very close.
"Cal is looking great," Watson said. "Cal is looking very great. I was up at the NFTC, I'm not competing because I don't want to risk anything, and I actually came up to see Cal and Fresno State and I really, really love Cal.
"Their academics are just amazing. That draws me in from the start. My parents always wanted me to go there and I always wanted to go there so that took me in. It's located in a great area. The school is amazing. The football facility is great and the coaching staff is like family. I love it there."
Watson, a 5-foot-10, 184-pound prospect who plays for one of the powerhouse programs in Southern California, said he's considering a commitment to the Golden Bears and that it could happen at any point.
Cal, BYU, Fresno State, Nevada, New Mexico, Toledo, Utah and Washington State have offered the three-star running back and he's also picking up a lot of new interest.
Corona Centennial recently had a college showcase and after that event, Watson said Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, UCLA and USC have gotten more involved.
"Some of them want to see me at their summer camp but this off-season I told them I'm not really going to any camps, I'm more focused on my season," Watson said.
"I want to get stronger, bigger and faster so if they want to see me I'd rather they come to my game or check out my highlight tape. All of them have seen me play on highlights and they came to the showcase."
After his weekend visit to Cal, all those programs could be too late. The Golden Bears have emerged as the favorite and could be tough to catch.
