Watkins moving closer to decision, per KornCOOT

By Phil Kornblut

DL Carlos Watkins of Forest City, NC will announce his college decision Friday night after his game. He is choosing between Clemson and Florida. His coach, Daniel Bailey, said tonight Watkins is still working on that final decision. “Him and his parents are going to talk to his pastor and pray on it and I think tomorrow he’ll probably know his decision and stick with it,” Bailey said. “He plans on calling both schools this week. He spoke to our local (media) people today and gave them some information about Clemson and Florida and he told them everybody will find out Friday. I think he’s going to let his mom and dad know his decision.” Watkins said earlier this week he was a very slight lean to Florida.


sorry KornCoot...he will choose Clemson one reason

is that it is much closer to his family..AMEN!


I was at Chase HS today and talked with Carlos...

First off---he is a very nice and respectful young man. Was sharply dressed and used excellent manners in the couple minutes I spoke with him.

Second---I told him we are proud of his success and hope that he chooses Clemson but that we want him to be successful wherever he chooses.

Third---several other people (students and faculty alike) told me that they thought he would ultimately pick Clemson. Most said it is closer and his family seems to really LOVE Clemson.

As I said earlier today, I might be wrong but I feel really good that we get him.

(On a side note---someone "in the know" mentioned that Bullard may not qualify academically and will really need to get it in gear to pull it out. Also mentioned that Bullard definitely favors Florida, for what it's worth.)


I thought you were talking about Sammy

He is still considering if he should score 2 touchdowns or 3 against Maryland. He's leaning towards 3.


we're going to pull another out of Florida

to the dismay of the locals down there

He is from Forest City North Carolina.

play so far away from his Family & friends...not have any better career at UF than he could have at Clemson...or any better chance to make it to the NFL.

And, he could scoot home some off-days to get a taste of MaMa's home cooking and see girl friend too.

Oh my, I will never understand a teenager since it's a fact that their brains aren't fully developed til about 21.

Clemson can survive without him but this young man could do very well at Tigertown and not have to hit the long distance road or airport for 3 or 4 years.

Go TIGERS!

To All CLEMSON TiGERS..Sending you Bright Light from the Carolina Coast and hoping you get to witness a huge Orange sunset tonight. Go Tigers!


Nothing towards UF but why would Forest City player want to

Same reason Sammy, Bellamy, Steward wanted to play

so far away from their home in Fla.


He is not from Florida but I agree***

you misunderstood his post. he knows the guy is not from fla


Posted: Oct 13, 2011 5:42 AM
 

he was responding to why would a nc guy want to play in fla, and he said for the same reason as guys from fla coming to sc.

the OP also knew he was not from florida. he was referring to the folks in gainsville being shocked at us getting another big time recruit, a la CJ, away from them and the great UF because those folks think why would a kid go to clemson when he could go to florida.

some kids want to be close to home or stay in state.

some kids want to go get away from home and go out of state and it doesn't matter how great in state schools are.

some kids grow up loving a certain school and it doesn't matter how bad that school is, that is where those kids want to go, period. that is why it doesn't matter who the coach is or how bad they are, we will always lose great sc players to the coots.
