Linebacker Grant Watanabe Becomes Colorado's Second Commit

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Mike MacIntyre has landed a first-team all-state player from Texas.

Nothing like a new commit to take our minds off of the disarray caused by the firing of former athletic director Mike Bohn. As reported by Rivals writer Wes Crochet, San Antonio linebacker Grant Watanabe has given his verbal pledge to Mike MacIntyre and the Buffaloes.

In 2012, he was named the Defensive Player of the Year in San Antonio after recording 167 tackles, 27 for a loss, three sacks and four interceptions. He was a junior All-American, first-team all-state, first-team all-city and unanimous first-team all-district selection. Sounds like a guy that makes plays with one heck of a resume. It's always good to keep the Texas pipelines active, especially with the increased emphasis in California.

Welcome aboard, Grant!

Notes: From Rivals:
"Oh man, they were very convincing at Colorado. They just had a lot to offer. Everything I look for in a college, they pretty much had it all. I really like what the coaches are doing there. I feel like [head] coach [Mike] MacIntyre is going to make the program good again and I really liked everybody there; the whole coaching staff. I got to talk one-on-one with Coach MacIntyre and he told me all the things he liked from my film and talked about how well I would fit into their program, so I thought that was pretty cool. It was a pretty awesome trip."
