Keith Watkins II (5-10, 175) RB/CB

Most of the film on Watkins online is of him as a running back but he will be suiting up as a defensive back in Evanston. He has a phenomenal ability to cut and run which should translate well to covering receivers. He showed good hands out of the backfield as a running back which should only help his cause at corner. He has experience returning kickoffs and would be very dangerous as a return man because he has the ability to make people miss easily and kicks it into a second gear when he sees open field ahead.
