The recruiting process is quickly winding down for Leilehua defensive back Charles Watson.

Watson, who told the Star-Advertiser’s Stephen Tsai last month he wanted to make his decision by the end of the summer, released his list of six schools to make the latest cut for his services.

Hawaii, Vanderbilt, Washington State, San Diego State, Fresno State and Oregon State are all still in the hunt to land Watson.



Watson was named to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser all-state second team last year as a junior. He’s 6-2, 180 pounds and has run a hand-timed 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

He told Tsai last month if he had to pick a school then, it would have been Hawaii, but he’s spent the last three weeks on the mainland visiting schools and participating in camps. Hawaii projects him as a cornerback while Vanderbilt sees him as a strong safety or outside linebacker.


Watson and Kahuku’s Aliki Vimahi have been offered by 10 FBS schools. Only Saint Louis QB Tua Tagovailoa, who has committed to Alabama, has received more offers among those in the Class of 2017 from Hawaii.

    If you play in the Mountain West, play for Hawaii. Vandy is a good option.
