Charles Moku Watson has been at the top of Oregon State’s list for quite sometime. With less than two weeks left until National Signing Day the talented defensive back listed Oregon State and BYU as his top two schools and decided to make his commitment during the Poly Bowl (currently airing on ESPN 3).
I'll be announcing my college commitment tomorrow on ESPN3 during the 4th quarter of the polybowl...Tune In— Charles Moku Watson (@MokuSeui) January 21, 2017
Watson is a terrific athlete who played wide receiver and cornerback for Leilehua high school on the island of Oahu. At 6-foot-2 and 170-pounds he is expected to be a safety or corner at the next level and help reload a defensive backfield that lost seniors Treston Decoud and Devin Chapelle.
Watson had drawn interest from many of the top schools in the country. He is a great athlete and has good size and speed. Watson is considered one of the best prospects in Hawaii with only, Tua Tagovailoa, a QB who has already committed to Alabama ranked higher than Watson.
Charles Moku Watson originally committed to Washington State back in July, but decommitted after taking an official visit to Oregon State in September. He is the third defensive back commit in the 2017 recruiting class joining fellow 3 star DBs Justin Gardner of Georgia and Jeffrey Manning Jr of Los Angeles.
