Senior forward Paul Watson has an array of offers and he says four schools stand out for him at the moment...

Paul Watson, 6-6 SR SF Phoenix (Ariz.) Paradise Valley, recently gave us an update on his recruitment.

"I'm hearing from Arizona State, Colorado, Boise State, Texas Tech, Oregon State, Arizona, North Carolina State, USC, Oklahoma, Nevada, UNLV, Fresno State and Northern Arizona," said Watson.

Watson said ASU, Colorado, Boise State, USC, Oregon State, Texas Tech, Fresno State and Northern Arizona have extended scholarship offers.

Watson talked a little about the issues he will consider when picking a school.

"I want someplace where I'm going to get along with my teammates – I want to be surrounded by good teammates," said Watson. "I want to be someplace where I'm comfortable with the school. The location doesn't really matter, but I would like to be able to contribute as a freshman."

Watson has been on unofficial visits to Arizona, Arizona State and USC. He talked a little about his visit to USC.

"USC has a great campus and I like Coach O'Neill," said Watson. "I like how they are running things out there."

When asked if any schools stand out for him, Watson replied, "I like Colorado, Fresno State, USC and Arizona State right now."

I asked Watson if he has a time frame for picking a school.

"I want to decide before the season, but I definitely want to take some visits," said Watson.

Watson said he has a 3.2 GPA.
