We spoke with Watson recently and asked him about the schools that have expressed early interest in him.
Watson said a number of those programs have been out to his school this fall to watch him play. "Arizona State, St. John's, Texas Tech, Utah, Tennessee, Iowa State and Notre Dame have all come to my school," said Watson.
We asked Watson if any schools stand out from the group at this time. "St. John's and Tennessee would be my two favorites right now. My brother goes to Tennessee and I like St. John's. They have a good program, I like New York and I like Coach Jarvis."
Watson said academics and where he sees a program being in a couple years will be factors in his decision. He said location is not an issue.
Watson doesn't plan on making a decision anytime soon. "I'll sign in the early signing period next fall," said Watson. "But I'll wait until after the summer to decide."
Watson told us that he has a 3.0 GPA so far this semester and he'll take the SAT in April.
