Pinellas Park cornerback Rashaan Watson decided to end his recruiting process by committing to South Alabama on Friday.

"I just like where South Alabama as a football program is going," Watson said. "They're up and coming and it feels like home."

South Alabama started its football program in 2009 before moving up to Division I-A and into the Sun Belt Conference.

Watson said he chose the Jaguars over Georgia Southern and Georgia State. This past season, Watson recorded 72 tackles and four interceptions to help the Patriots advance to the Class 7A region semifinals.

"It was very important to me (to commit early) because now I can give my full attention to this upcoming football season and school," Watson said.
