Texas A&M DB Armani Watts Announces He'll Return To School In 2017

The Texas A&M defense just got a huge lift for next season.

Standout defensive back Armani Watts revealed on Twitter that he will be returning to school for his senior season.

Watts is a three-year starter at safety but has been limited to nine games this season due to injuries.

This season, the 5-foot-11, 200-pound Watts has registered 56 tackles in nine contests, including six for a loss. He also has intercepted two passes and forced a pair of fumbles.

As a sophomore, Watts led A&M with 126 tackles, the first Aggie defensive back to hit the century mark in 12 years.

CBSSports rated Watts as the No. 6 free safety prospect in the 2018 draft in its latest set of rankings.
