Watford has performed well on the AAU circuit this summer. His performance has kept him among the top players in his class. "I think I had a good summer. I kept improving on my versatility. I believe I shot the ball well this summer. I just want to make sure I have a well-rounded game," said Watford.

His game has been well-rounded enough to attract some of the top programs in the nation to his doorstep. Watford lists Memphis, Louisville, Indiana and Kentucky as his leaders. He also says that Missouri is trying to get involved as well.

Although Watford did attend Kentucky's Elite Camp earlier this summer, he'll be unable to attend the one this weekend. "I'm going to be in Texas for the Adidas Nations event," said Watford.

Waford will be trying to make his college choice at some point in November. He has a few factors that will play into that choice. "I'm just looking for a coach that will trust me with playing time. I want to compete for a national championship and get ready for the next level."

Watford is a four-star prospect and the number six small forward in the nation according to Scout.com.
