Just a few weeks after impressing at the Shrine Bowl, future Clemson defensive tackle Carlos Watkins will head to the US Army All-American game.
“I leave on Sunday. My family is coming next week. My mom, dad, brother and sister will be coming out,” said Watkins.
The top 100 prospect can’t wait to get to San Antonio.
“I am excited to get there. It will be my first time flying that far. I am ready to get out there and meet all the guys,” said Watkins.
How will it help having future teammates Bradley Pinion, Germone Hopper and Travis Blanks out there?
“It is good having them there. It shows that we have a good class when we have guys playing in the All-American games,” said Watkins.
During the Shrine Bowl Carlos got to build a strong bond with ten other future Tigers.
“We are real close. We spent a lot of time together at the Shrine Bowl. We got a lot closer that week,” said Watkins.
With Jonathan Bullard struggling to make his final decision how Is Carlos handling the recruiting of his good friend?
“I have been talking to him about Clemson, but I am not trying to pressure him. It is his choice. I am just trying to let him know all the facts,” said Watkins.
Carlos will get a chance to work some more on Jonathan this week when they travel out to the US Army All-American game together.
“Bradley, Hopper, Jonathan and I will all be on the same flight out there,” said Watkins.
How was the Christmas Holiday for Carlos?
“It was great. I really enjoyed myself. I got to spend a lot of time with my family,” said Watkins.
