Heritage WR Amonyae Watson adds W&M offer

Amonyae Watson adds an offer from W&M and narrows his listby Brandon Mitchell, recruit757

Amonyae Watson had more to celebrate this past Friday than just a win over the Hampton Crabbers. Watson (SR WR 6-2 172) grabbed an offer from William & Mary which now means the Tribe coaching staff is very much interested in the Heritage Hurricane. This latest offer brings Watson’s scholarship list up to 14 offers. The beginning of the season didn’t signify a lapse of offers being thrown his way. With three games under his belt, programs will start to take a more focused look at Watson’s package to see if they can crack his “Top 6” list.

“I’ve always been a target of William & Mary since I won wide receiver MVP my junior year at an All-American camp in northern Virginia. There I got the chance to work with them and a lot of other college receiver coaches. According to the wide receiver coach at William & Mary, Winston October, I’m his number one wide receiver target,” stated Watson.

Watson is holding onto 13 other scholarship offers as he still hasn’t made a decision on where he wants to verbally commit. Navy, Army, Howard University, Hampton University, Syracuse University, Troy University, Delaware State University, Towson University, Vanderbilt University, Robert Morris University, Coastal Carolina University, Liberty University, and the University of Buffalo have all submitted and offer in the direction of Amonyae Watson. On August 1, Watson announced his “Top 6” programs in a Twitter announcement. Those ‘Top 6” programs are as follows:

1) Vanderbilt University
2) Syracuse University
3) University of Buffalo
4) Coastal Carolina
5) Troy University
6) Navy

Watson hasn’t leaned in one direction or another in terms of showing favoritism in making his decision. At the same time, he’s been getting a lot of love from the programs on his “Top 6” list. Most recently Navy and Coastal Carolina University have shown the most support via Twitter. Coastal Carolina sent the Hurricane a picture of him in a Chanticleers jersey urging him to “ball at the beach”. Navy sent the Heritage product a picture depicting him to be near the middle of a huddle selling “family and brotherhood”. There’s still a lot of football to be played and more time for offers to come his way.

The Hurricanes have started the season off 3-0 and look to start the season 4-0 for the fourth time in the last 10 years. Heritage will matchup against Menchville (0-3) who will look to avoid starting (0-4) for the second straight season.
