Charles Moku Watson, from Hawaii, went on KHON2 News this evening to announce his commitment and has decided to leave his home state and play college football for Washington State. Watson is a terrific athlete who currently plays wide receiver and corner for his high school team. At 6-foot-1 and 170-pounds he is expected to be a safety or corner at the next level.
Watson had drawn interest from many of the top schools in the country and had over 10 scholarships offers in hand when he made his commitment. He trimmed his list of schools down to six a few weeks ago and announced his decision date on Twitter just a few days ago.
With Watson's unfortunate decision to play football for the Washington State Cougars, the Beavers will turn their attention to Naytron Culpepper and Antwan Collier who are two extremely talented corners from the state of Florida. They are both drawing strong interest from the top programs in the nation and have received numerous scholarship offers. Gary Andersen and his staff have made it a priority to increase their recruiting efforts in Florida and securing a commitment from either one of these players would be huge for Oregon State.
