Class of 2018 four-star cornerback Myles Sims, from Atlanta (GA) Westlake, committed to Michigan on April 7th and is already trying to flip a recruit. Sims is recruiting 2019 three-star safety Kenyatta Watson II, a Florida State commit.

“Spider has been saying how cool Jim Harbaugh is and how I should keep my options open,” Watson, who was offered by the Wolverines on May 2nd, told Maize n Brew. “I think I’m going to be up for a visit in the summer.”

Watson, from Loganville (GA) Grayson, is ranked No. 278 in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports. He is the 16th-best safety and is ranked No. 25 in the state of Georgia.

The 6-foot-2, 177-pound athlete has offers to play for Florida State (committed), Florida Atlantic, Wisconsin, Boston College, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Colorado State, Florida, Georgia, Kansas State, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Oregon State, Pen State, Syracuse, Tennessee, Tulane, UCF, Vanderbilt, and Wisconsin.

“Michigan is high on my list,” he mentioned. “I’ve always wanted an offer from there. I’m keeping my options open and I’m willing to play anywhere really.”

Watson committed to Florida State on April 8th. He has the versatility to play cornerback or safety at the next level, but is most likely to settle in at safety.

Sims, on the other hand, is ranked No. 121 in the 2018 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. The 6-foot-3, 173-pound athlete is the 14th-best cornerback and is ranked No. 14 in the state of Georgia. Florida State offered Sims on May 1st.

Watson helped lead Grayson High School to a 14-1 record in the 2016 season, including a three-point victory over Roswell High School in the Georgia Class 7A state championship.

As for Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, Watson has only heard good things.

“I’ve never met him,” he said. “From what I have heard he is a great coach and is always looking to make his players better.”
