When Justin Fields, K.J. Hill, Malik Harrison, Tuf Borland, and the rest of the Ohio State football squad takes the field at the Horseshoe, a solid group of high school recruits will be among the over 100,000 people watching the Buckeyes in action.

Reportedly playing host to a number of prospects, class of 2021 three-star defensive end Tyson Watson will be just one of the recruits on hand to watch the Buckeyes mix it up with the RedHawks of Miami.

“I’m excited too see everything to be honest and cant wait to get there.” the 6’5 230-pound Warren Mott (MI) product stated to Land-Grant Holy Land on his upcoming trip to Columbus.

Invited down by the staff recently, it’s a former Michigan man turned Buckeye, who Watson talks with the most.

“I talk with coach (Greg) Mattison the most. He likes the way I get after the quarterback and run to the ball.”

With early offers on the table from programs such as Iowa, Iowa State and Kentucky, Ohio State has yet to enter the recruiting race for Watson, but is something he wouldn’t mind potentially happening in the very near future.

“When I hear Ohio State I think of a winning program and a great program. That offer would be amazing for me.” Said, Watson.

A name that could skyrocket up the ranking lists in the coming months, Watson currently sits as the 36th strong-side defensive end, and 549th overall prospect in the junior class, according to the latest 247Sports Composite.
