Watson keeps adding interest

Point guards are at a premium in the 2015 class, but one of the best is Illinois native Glynn Watson.

Four-star point guard Glynn Watson has been instrumental in leading the Illinois Wolves to a very impressive start to the spring. The fast, play making floor general has had a strong start to things, and college coaches continue to turn up the heat in his recruitment.

"The spring is going pretty good," said Watson. "We came in second place last weekend at the Jayhawk Invitational and we won here, so we are doing what we want as a team and that is to compete for championships."

With his team getting wins, Watson feels that his game is going in the right direction.

"I think my game is coming together," said Watson. "We have new bigs on the team this year so I have been getting used to my teammates and I have been in the gym working."

Recruiting wise several schools were in attendance to track Watson during the open evaluation period, and he has been hearing from schools since the event.

"Creighton, Nebraska, Purdue, Iowa, and Xavier were the schools I talked to since the Jayhawk event," listed Watson.

Nebraska recently offered Watson a scholarship during an in-home visit, and it is one he was very happy to get.

"It was good to get an offer from them," said Watson. "They had been talking to me for a while, but hadn't offered, but then on the in-home visit they did. They just told me about their school and how I would fit in and different things like that."

One school that has been after Watson for a while is Creighton, and the Bluejays remain very much in the mix for his services.

"They are a great school," said Watson of Creighton. "I will go to visit Nebraska and Creighton and see them both. I like how Coach (Gregg) McDermott coaches and they are a great school with a great coaching staff."

For now Watson is still gaining all the information he can, but says he does have a good idea of what will be important to him going forward.

"I am looking for an overall fit with the coaching staff and the system," explained Watson. "I also want to be surrounded by good players who are also good people."
