Watson Begins Visitation Process
CJ Watson, a 6-1, 160 pound point guard from Las Vegas (NV) Bishop Gorman, is set to take his first official visit this coming weekend. Watson leaves Thursday for a trip to Tennessee. He also has a visit set up to Fresno State the weekend of Sept. 7.
Also on Watson's short list are Minnesota, UCLA, UNLV and Iowa State. He has in-home visits scheduled with UNLV (Sept. 9), Fresno (10), Minnesota (11) and Tennessee (13).
"I'm probably going to decide after the visits," Watson said. "The amount of playing time I can get and how comfortable I feel with the school matter."
On Wednesday, Fresno State announced that point guard Tito Maddox would not be with the team this year. That announcement could help the Bulldogs in a big way. "I like them a lot," Watson said. "I like Jerry Tarkanian and I know that they have an open guard position and that makes it more interesting for me."
On the same note, UNLV recently received a commitment from guard Demetrius Hunter and that commitment could impact Watson's thinking when it comes to the Rebels.
Watson has family in Tennessee, thus the connection to the Volunteers.
