Watkins is ranked the nation’s No. 21 wide receiver and No. 115 overall prospect in the 247Sports composite. He earned more than 20 offers during his recruiting process, including Alabama, Florida State, LSU and Texas.
The addition of Watkins gives the Gators 15 members in their 2018 class, which is now ranked No. 15 nationally. The 5-foot-11, 172-pound Watkins is third highest-rated player on Florida’s commitment list.
