At 5-foot-11, 212 pounds, Watson is considered the No. 92 running back in the class by the 247Sports composite rankings. He has seven offers, but the only Power 5 offer came from Wisconsin, which extended it last month.
Wisconsin’s 2018 class was ranked 28th in the country and seventh in the Big Ten prior to Watson’s commitment. The Badgers leaped three spots in the national rankings to 25th with his addition.
