Watson having strong year

Four-star Glynn Watson is having a strong junior year and keeps picking up interest on the recruiting trail.

Four-star point guard Glynn Watson is one of the top floor generals and playmakers in the class of 2015. The Westchester (Ill.) St. Joseph's standout is having a very solid junior season and continues to pick up recruiting interest.

"The season has gone pretty well," said Watson. "I think I have been playing pretty good, but I could have played better at times. We have only had our team healthy for a couple of games, but other than that I think things have gone pretty well."

In terms of his own play, Watson has been working on numerous parts of his game, and feels he is a more complete point guard.

"I'm just being a leader and trying to help my team," said Watson. "I am trying to get everybody involved and just working on my overall game. Also I have worked on being more vocal and more of a leader."

Recruiting wise Watson has noted in the past that schools like Purdue, Iowa, Creighton, Northwestern, Illinois, Xavier, Nebraska, and Marquette are all interested in him. To date the only visit he has taken this season was to Northwestern.

About the trip to Northwestern, Watson said, "I just like how they are doing things now. I think next year they will be pretty good, and I just like how they have changed things and how they are playing."

One school he has hoping to get out to visit is Iowa. The Hawkeyes have been very diligent in this recruitment, and are working to get him on campus.

"I have been watching their games on TV and stuff like that. I was supposed to go visit (Sunday), but I had to go to practice," said Watson. "I can't say too much about Iowa because I haven't been there, but I am looking forward to visiting the campus and seeing them."

A school that has had Watson on campus is Purdue. The Boilermakers were the first to offer, and they remain in contact with him.

"They are still talking to me a little bit," noted Watson. "They basically want me to commit and they were my first offer so that is basically it with Purdue."

For now Watson is focused on finishing up strong this season and then coming out and having an impressive spring and summer on the AAU circuit with the Illinois Wolves.
