Mikel Watson Update

A new NCAA rule allow college coaches to visit juniors on their high school campus in the spring. Several coaches will be taking advantage of that rule to talk with point guard Mikel Watson this week...

Mikel Watson, 6-1 JR PG Oceanside (Calif.) El Camino, will host several college coaches on his campus this weekend.

We spoke with Watson last week and he told us that Gonzaga, USF and Colorado St. are all planning on watching him work out, and speaking with him, during their visits to El Camino this week. Additionally, Watson told us that Oregon and Oregon St. had also made tentative plans to visit him at El Camino this week.

While Watson doesn't yet have a list of leaders, he did say that his father has a preference. "My dad likes Gonzaga," Watson said. "They have good post players and I am looking for a team with good post players to open things up."
