Purdue recruiting Watson the hardest

Glynn Watson, who performed well at the UA Invitational for the Illinois Wolves this past weekend, has a handful of high majors recruiting him, including an offer from one.

On a Illinois Wolves team that has a host of Division-1 players, 2015 guard Glynn Watson is starting to make a name for himself.

Watson, a 5-foot-11 guard out of Westchester (Ill.) Joseph, has a strong handle, sees the floor well and showed an ability to create for his teammates at the UA Invitational in Arlington, Tex. this past weekend.

"I look first for my teammates," Watson said. "Then I try to score if we need scoring. But other than that I'm looking for my teammates."

Watson, who cites passing as his biggest strength, said he's focused on leading the Wolves.

"I think I can play better, but I think I've played pretty solid," he said. "I've just tried to be a leader and help my team. I have a lot of good talent on this team and I try to get them the ball as much as possible."

Watson already has a handful of high major schools involved in his recruitment, including on scholarship offer.

"It's going pretty good," he said of his recruitment. "I have Wright State. I have one offer from Purdue. Indiana, Illinois, Marquette and Xavier are looking at me."

Watson said he visited Illinois, Indiana, Marquette and Purdue last spring. He doesn't have any current visits plans.

According to Watson, Purdue is prioritizing him.

"I think they are coming at me the hardest," Watson said. "They are looking for me to come to their school and they think I'd be a great point guard for their school."

Does Watson have an early favorite?

"Not really right now," he said. "I'm just trying to look and see which program fits me the best for academics and stuff."
