Hampton (VA) quarterback David Watford has made his college choice. The only thing left for the 6-1, 185-pound rising senior star to do is to reveal it, which is exactly what he plans to do on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Peninsula All-Star Football Camp on the campus of Christopher Newport University.

“I’m just basically waiting to tell everybody, to let everybody else know,” Watford said. “I’ve told the coaches. I’m just keeping it quiet until I announce.”

Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia officially offered the Crabbers signal caller, whose decision came down to two of the three schools.

“It came down to Virginia Tech and UVa,” said Watford.

Asked how he made the decision, Watford said, “It was a gut feeling. I just went on how I felt there and how I felt around the staff and how comfortable I was when I was around the staff. I went on how I felt about the head coaches. Coach Beamer is one of the best in the nation. Coach Beamer is a great guy. Coach London is a good person and a good role model. Also, my mom and my dad helped me decide.”

Watford, who threw for 1,538 yards and 16 touchdowns and rushed for 480 yards last season as a junior, is one of the top quarterbacks in the state of Virginia’s 2011 class. Eyeing a state championship for his team in 2010, the talented prospect seems relieved to have made his college decision.

“It feels really good,” said Watford, who ranks in at #19 in TechSideline.com’s Preseason Top 40. “I’m just ready to make my choice and get ready for my senior season and focus on my senior year.”
