One of the players having a tremendous spring is Nate Watson. Now running with DC Premier, Watson has taken his game to a new level, and continues to show major improvement. With that more scholarship offers continue to come in, and Watson says three are showing him the most attention.
“My spring has been very good,” said Watson. “I have put in a lot of time in the gym, so things have been going well and I feel I am improving.”
He continued, “I am working on my quickness and also improving my face up jumper.”
On the recruiting trail Watson has offers from Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Cincinnati, Xavier, Providence, Marquette, and others.
With a long list of offers, Watson says three schools are pursuing him the hardest at the moment.
“Maryland, Providence, and Virginia Tech talk to me the most,” noted Watson.
Maryland is located close to home for Watson, and the Terps are telling him he has a definite role in their system.
“They just tell me that they really like me and they are really interested in me,” said Watson. “They think I can be a great player for them in the future.”
Ed Cooley and Providence are looking to add much needed size to their roster with the 2017 class, and Watson is someone they are building a good relationship with.
“It is great with Providence,” explained Watson. “They say I am much needed and that I would fit in well with their program.”
Buzz Williams and his staff at Virginia Tech have made sure to recruit the DMV hard, and Watson is someone they are clearly trying to zero in on.
“Virginia Tech is saying pretty much the same thing,” he explained. “They want me to come and feel I fit in well and would be valuable to their program.”
Currently there is no specific timeframe for a decision from Watson, but he does know what he is looking for in a school.
“I am looking for a school that is somewhat close to home, has a nice campus, and a nice crowd at their games,” explained Watson.
