Lineman Watkins Has A New Leader

Clemson had been considered the favorite to land defensive tackle Carlos Watkins from Chase High School in Forest City, N.C.

That status appears to have changed after Watkins’ trip last weekend.

“I would have to say Florida’s ahead, to be honest,” Watkins told 247Sports.com. “That trip really opened my eyes.”

Florida could be the only official visit for Watkins, who’s considered the nation’s fifth-best defensive tackle by 247Sports. He plans to announce his final choice between Florida and Clemson following his high school game on Oct. 14.

“Clemson’s still close, but Florida has the lead,” he said. “I’m not quite ready to make my decision yet, but I’m going to sit down with my parents and my pastor and talk about some things. They said basically it’s my decision. I kind of know right now, but I don’t know for sure. That’s what I’m debating.”
