Bowling Green wins battle for CB

Will Watson (Tampa, Fla./Jefferson), a fast riser on the recruiting trail this season, has accepted an offer from Bowling Green, Rivals.com reports.

Ball State, Bethune-Cookman, East Carolina, Iowa State, Middle Tennessee, UAB and Youngstown State also offered the 5-foot-11, 180-pounder. Central Florida showed interest. He was scheduled to visit the Blue Raiders this weekend.

Watson was impressive on the combine circuit prior to his senior year posting a 4.59 40-yard dash and 28.5-inch vertical.

The MAC Falcons have 20 players on board for 2012.
