Hutto's Landyn Watson commits to Texas Christian University

The Hutto defender announced his college decision on KVUE.

AUSTIN, Texas — Hutto defender Landyn Watson has earned scholarship offers from Division 1 programs all across the country, including Lousiana State University, Baylor University, the University of Arkansas, Texas Christian University, Arizona State University, Florida State University and many more. 

The 6-foot, 3-inch, 235-pound rising senior plays defensive end for the Hippos, but could easily lineup at outside linebacker at the next level.

After two all-district seasons, Watson is ready for a very productive senior year. But before stepping on the field in 2020, he took time to make his college announcement on a video call with KVUE Sports Director Jeff Jones.

After thanking God and his family, Watson said, "I would like to announce that I will be going to Texas Christian University. Go Frogs!," holding up the Horned Frogs' hand sign.

"It fit me, it fit my playing time, my character, it fit me as a person and my family," Watson said. "I trust Coach [Gary] Patterson and Coach [Dan] Sharpe. Those guys have told me what they can do for me, and they've backed it up with a resume that proves it."

That resume that Watson mentioned includes 11 TCU players who have been drafted in just the past three years.

When asked which team he most looks forward to playing against, Watson said with a smile, "I'm [most] looking forward to playing the University of Texas because I live 30 minutes away from the University of Texas."

Watson's senior season at Hutto will kick off on Sept. 25 at College Station
