ESPN Watch List cornerback Nick Watkins (Dallas/Bishop Dunne) had planned on attending the Red River Rivalry showdown between Texas and Oklahoma. Unfortunately, he was admittedly tardy in making a request for tickets. Rather than enjoying the Cotton Bowl atmosphere, he watched the game on television.

“I didn’t call Oklahoma early enough,” he said. “I was so focused on getting ready for our game on Friday, I guess it just kind of slipped my mind.”

Watkins said Oklahoma’s defense was very impressive in the 62-31 rout over Texas, but he added that the two programs -- both of which have offered -- are still in the same boat as the other programs that have offered. Watkins has offers from heavyweights such as Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Notre Dame and Ohio State.
