"First they have a better program and they are going to help me get my degree," Watson said when asked about his decision. "They are also in the Pac-10 and I'll be playing against players that are going to be in the NBA."
"Coach Bennett and I have a good relationship. That's why I like those guys so much. He's really easy to talk and he's going to help me make it in college. Plus I like their other coaches and players and the entire staff."
Watson feels like he can make an impact at Washington State his first year on campus. He said he'll bring a little bit of everything to the table, but his defense is what he thrives on.
"I'll help them out with blocking shots, rebounding and they'll have me playing both the three and the four and I think I'll fit in just right."
