Watson talks official visits

Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington defensive tackle Elkino Watson was part of the Dade squad that came up victorious, 21-20, over Broward in the annual Nike South Florida All-Star Game on Thursday night.
"It was a big game," Watson said. "It is all about bragging rights when we play Broward and we came up with the win. Overall, I had a fun time playing in the game."
The 6-foot-2, 275-pound defensive tackle is focused in on a few schools and has official visits on the docket.
"I went to Louisville in December," Watson said. "I go to Florida (Friday), South Florida the week after that, and then Florida State the week after that. I don't know the fifth one yet."
The three-star defensive tackle talked a bit about his trip to Louisville back in early December.
"I had a good time up there," Watson said. "I got to see the whole place, learn about the whole program. I got a better feel for it. I really liked it up there."
As for his next visit, to Gainesville, he is looking forward to learning more about the Gators. He has been in recent communication with new Florida coach Will Muschamp.
"He came to my house and we had a nice little conference," Watson said. "I really like his vibe and his energy as a young coach who really gets after it and everything. He is a defensive guy so I know I would fit good into his system."
At this point, Watson does not claim a leader. As for a decision, he doesn't have a specific timeline.
"A decision could come after a trip or on Signing Day," Watson said.
Academically, Watson said that he has earned the necessary standardized test score.
