WESTWOOD, Calif. - Tre Watson committed to Cal in May and he's happy with the Golden Bears but the Corona (Calif.) Centennial running back is going to look at two other major options.
UCLA just offered the 5-foot-10, 184-pound three-star running back and after camping at USC earlier this week, Watson said at the B2G Elite Camp that the Trojans might be close as well.
"UCLA just offered and I went down to USC (Thursday) and they said an offer could be coming pretty soon," Watson said.

Watson, who rushed for 1,483 yards and 24 touchdowns in his junior season, said he definitely likes UCLA because the Bruins only signed one running back last year.
USC also has a lot to offer and even though the Trojans took two, Watson is not one to shy away from competition if that's the best fit.
"I'm actually very excited about UCLA because they signed one running back for 2013 so I could have a good opportunity to come in and take over," Watson said.
"I love competition. If (USC) does have somebody signed I don't really care. I just want to go out and compete with the best. It would mean a lot to me."
There is new interest. Watson is going to take a look. But the Corona Centennial standout said he remains committed to Cal, loves the Golden Bears' offense and is happy with his decision. Still, it's a long way to signing day and Watson knows it.
"I'm still committed to Cal but I'm going to keep my eyes open and stay open-minded about things," Watson said.
"I want to take a couple visits, see the schools and see my different options. At the end of the day I'm still committed to Cal but you never know until February when I sign."
