Watkins had been committed to the Seminoles for nine months, but made the decision to head west to the Big 12 during a trip to the Austin campus on Saturday.
The 6-foot, 173-pounder is ranked as the No. 1 athlete in the class of 2018 and the 10th overall prospect on the ESPN 300. He held offers from a number of top programs, including the Seminoles, Clemson, Alabama, and Florida before deciding on Texas.
Herman's ability to land a massive Florida prospect speaks volumes about his talent as a recruiter, and should help the new Longhorns coach land a very strong class for 2018.
