Nebraska Football: QB William Watson is N for Huskers

Nebraska football landed a  commitment from 2023 three-star quarterback William Watson on Tuesday night.

Watson is the 36th overall quarterback in the 2023 class, and the eighth overall player in his class from the state of Massachusetts per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

In addition to Nebraska, he had offers from the likes of Akron, Arizona, Boston College, and Connecticut. He had 11 offers in total including one in Pittsburgh. Watson has had a strong relationship with new Nebraska offensive coordinator Mark Whipple for quite a while now. Whipple was his primary recruiter.

What can Watson bring to the table? Watson brings a little bit of everything. He has speed and elusiveness, which reminded me of some of the previous quarterbacks that Nebraska football has recruited. In addition to his speed, he also has an extremely strong arm. That will certainly help Nebraska football as they look to open up the offense.

He is a little bit different than what Mark Whipple has wanted to recruit in the sense that he is a bit more mobile. Nevertheless, this is certainly a win for the Nebraska football program.  Brendan C. Hall, who used to cover Massachusetts high school athletics had high praise for Watson.

Playing for Springfield Central in 2021, Watson threw for 2,026 yards, 22 touchdowns and three interceptions. He also carried the ball 69 times for 590 yards and seven touchdowns. For his efforts, he was named the 2021 Massachusetts High School Football Player of the Year. Landing the high school player of the year in any state is certainly big.

With this commitment, the 2023 Nebraska football recruiting class continues to climb. With but this commitment, that makes the fifth overall player in the 2023 class to do so. The class ranks 13th nationally and fifth overall in the Big Ten per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Nebraska is building a strong 2023 class, and the addition of Watson certainly is a notch in the belt of Mark Whipple and the Nebraska football coaching staff. I’ll be curious to see who else they add, but this is a good start.
