Watkins With Four Offers
"I have offers from Grambling, Lamar, Southern and North Texas," said Khristopher Watkins. "Schools are talking about using me at H-Back and defense, too. Northwestern State is also showing interest. "I have two visits planned: to Lamar on January 14th and North Texas on January 19th. Louisiana Tech is also recruiting me; I talk to the defensive backs coach (Kevin Curtis). Tech hasn't offered yet, but they say they really want me to be a part of their team. I like Tech and like their program. They just won a ring (as WAC champs) and hopefully will win another. They're saying they want me and they're going to offer." Watkins' former teammate, Bryson Abraham, is a true freshman at Louisiana Tech. A quarterback in high school, Abraham inked with the Bulldogs as an athlete. "I talked to Bryson yesterday," said Watkins on Tuesday evening. "He came by and saw us. He loves it at Tech." Watkins led Jennings to the 3A quarterfinals this year. In the second round, he helped the ninth-seeded Bulldogs get payback for a regular season loss to No. 8 Eunice, catching a pass for 35 yards and carrying the football twice for 36 yards. He also returned a blocked punt for six points in Jennings' 35-16 victory. The Bulldogs finished the year with a 10-3 mark.
