Heading into his senior year, Watts had yet to make much of an impact with the Razorbacks. The three-star recruit from St. Louis red-shirted his first year in Fayetteville and played in 11 games as a reserve in 2015 (two tackles). He spent most of the next two years watching from the sideline, however. Watts played in just one contest in 2016 (one assisted tackle) and five games off the bunch in 2017 (four tackles). He finally earned a starting role in 2018, beginning 11 of 12 games played, and wound up leading the squad with seven sacks among his 49 tackles, 8.5 for loss. He also tied for the team lead with three forced fumbles.
