Fr. Wide Receiver
#7 6-1, 200
Fort Myers, FL
View Full Profile and you’d never know he’s only 18 years old and fresh out of South Fort Myers High.
Watkins has already set a school single-season record for touchdown receptions by a freshman. It only took three full games, 7 minutes and 13 seconds to do it. With a total of six touchdowns this season, Watkins is now tied for ninth in school history for touchdown receptions in a single season – regardless of class.
He’s putting up big numbers against big-time opponents. In back-to-back upsets of Auburn and Florida State, Watkins has had at least 140 receiving yards. He also has had at least 175 all-purpose yards in three straight games.
And he’s playing for the No. 13 team in the nation, undefeated at 4-0.
Sounds like a darkhorse freshman candidate to me.
