“I would like to thank all the universities that gave me the opportunity to take my talents to the next level,” Watson tweeted. “With that being said, I would like to announce I am committing to the University of Wisconsin.”
The 5-foot-11, 212-pound Watson is rated as the No. 52 running back in the country, according to 247 Sports. Wisconsin was his lone offer from a Power 5 school, though he did hold scholarship offers from Nevada, Bowling Green and North Texas among others.
Watson ran for 1,626 yards and 22 touchdowns during his junior season.
