Get to know the local legacy lineman

NCAA Football: Arizona State at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats secured a big future piece to their offensive line Wednesday, signing three-star offensive tackle David Watson.

He will be enrolling early in January.

Here is some info on the future Wildcat, whose father, also named David Watson, played for Arizona in the 1990s.

High School: Amphitheater High School

Hometown: Wilmington, California

247Sports Ranking: National - 1,308th; Position - 118th

My Thoughts: Watson is a really nice individual but man is he a monster on the field. He is a powerful human being who obliterates his opponents. He is another athletic, quick offensive lineman, shown when he scored a rushing touchdown this season. He does have good technique but will need to rely on that more than his raw strength at the next level.
