Elkino Watson grew up a Miami football fan, and many believed that the standout defensive tackle from Booker T. Washington High School would keep it in Miami-Dade County for his collegiate decision.  But on National Signing Day, Watson shocked the state by picking Skip Holtz and South Florida .

When the 275 pound lineman stared down his hat options, he saw Miami , Florida , and Louisville represented.  But after telling the Miami Herald that he was not focused on theatrics , Watson used the big stage to pull off one of the biggest shocks of the morning thus far.  According to Luke Stampini of 247sports.com, someone emerged from the crowd with a USF hat that Watson donned for his big announcement. 

Just to make sure that no one in attendance misunderstood the situation...
