Indiana offers 2016 guard Ibi Watson

Indiana extended a scholarship offer to 2016 Ohio guard Ibi Watson after watching him during the first July evaluation period.

After watching him during several games during the first July evaluation period over the weekend, Indiana extended a scholarship offer to 2016 guard Ibi Watson on Sunday night.

Watson, a 6-foot-5 prospect from Ohio, also has early offers from Dayton and Duquesne. Watson plays AAU ball for All Ohio Red.

Watson took an unofficial visit to Indiana last month.

“I just really connected with the coaches, got a great feel for the university and I thought the campus was beautiful,” Watson told Inside the Hall's Alex Bozich. “I just really liked how involved coach Crean is and he’s got a great plan for me.”

Watson averaged 12.0 points and 4.0 rebounds on the highly competitive Nike EYBL circuit in the spring. He has also generated strong interest from Michigan, Iowa and Florida, he told Bozich.

In a game this spring, Watson had 41 points and eight 3-pointers for All Ohio Red. Watch highlights of that performance in the embedded video player below. Top Stories
