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.
3-Star '14 SA Brennan LB Grant Watanabe has confirmed to me that he has committed to Colorado. Watanabe is 11th on @insideutsas SA22, 1st LB— Wes Crochet(@InsideUTSAWesC) May 30, 2013
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!
