    It wasn't a major shock but the horns secured the commitment of Kenyatta Watson II. The Georgia product is the number 18 CB in the nation and number 163 player overall. He could play any DB position in the future. He is super athletic at 6'2", 187 pounds, with a 4.5 40, 4.12 shuttle and 45 inch vertical!

    45 inch vertical is just ridiculous. If I remember right, that was the vertical of Tony Watson, aka TWA. That dude could jump out the building. I'm sure Snoop's vertical is around the same. Good luck trying to throw the ball over this guy's head.

    Nice pickup. After your DB haul last year, bringing in more top end DB's is impressive. Love kids from Georgia on defense. That state is loaded.

    If he has a legit 45 inch vertical jump he can get his 40 down into the 4.3 range no problem will a little bit of training

    TOS says he would be the top corner in Texas this cycle.

    Thought he was safety. He is long for a CB, if he has the hips he could be very good. His high school is incredibly loaded with 4 star guys, something in the water.

    Texas coaches have talked to him as corner/nickel.

    Seems like a player who could end up at any DB position. Does well in man coverage and has the hips to be a corner. Not the absolute fastest guy but has enough speed to go along with his length and athleticism. Big enough and aggressive enough to be a good safety or nickel. He's got the versatility DB coaches will love.

    If his Sparq numbers are legit he’s really fast. A real 4.5 forty for a high school junior is faaast. And a 45 inch vertical is big time for all of humanity.
