Watkins Talks About Minnesota Future
What made you decide on Minnesota? I went there for my official visit and it was really nice. The campus was great, their football program is on the up, they have great facilities, the teammates are cool, the coaches are great and it's just a great fit for me. Which position are you going to start off at? Safety What have you been told about your chances to play early? They said it's very likely and they're not expecting a redshirt for me. If in the offseason, I get bigger, stronger, faster, I could play. It all depends on what the coaches think is best for me. Are you talking with your cousin, Jeremy Gainer right now about joining you and what is his status? You know, we both went to campus together and I realize that he knows what Minnesota can offer, so I don't say too much. Right now, it's his job to make the right decision for him whether it's us playing together or not. Of course, I'm going to say positive things about Minnesota, but we'll just have to see what he does. You've had a long road, from missing last year with mono, until now. How does it feel to know you'll be playing Big Ten football in a year? It feels great, I had a plan and I was able to finalize what I want to do, execute my plan and I've accomplished a lot.
