NSD: Glynn Watson ready to officially be a Husker

After committing to Nebraska in late August, the nation's No. 6 point guard will sign his National Letter of Intent with the Huskers on Wednesday afternoon.

The announcement will come around 2:30 p.m. central time.

St. Joseph high school four-star point guard Glynn Watson, who committed in late August, will officially sign his National Letter of Intent to play at the University of Nebraska. Watson is the nation’s No. 6 point guard in the 2015 class.

“It feels pretty good, I committed a couple months ago when I found it was the right school for me,” said Watson, who’s excited for the entire process to be over. “Now I get to sign my official papers. To be able to go into the season with no pressure on me, I get to relax and play my game – hopefully making my team better.”

St. Joseph will hold an afternoon signing day ceremony on Wednesday to honor Watson and teammate Jordan Ash, who will be signing with Northwestern.

“After committing to a team already, you feel a little free. You don’t have to worry about coaches talking to you and things like that, it’s a great feeling,” said Watson. “I feel like a new person and relaxed since committing. I’m not thinking about recruiting or who I’m going to commit to. I’m not playing for anybody to prove I’m good. I’m playing for my teammates and myself.”

Watson will head to Nebraska turning down offers from Xavier, West Virginia, Tennessee, Purdue, Iowa, DePaul, and Creighton.

“At 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, Watson isn’t exactly someone that strikes fear into opponents during the layup line,” Scout.com national recruiting analyst Brian Snow said. “Once the game gets going it is a different story. Watson has near-elite speed, good floor vision, and an impressive floater once he gets into the lane. On top of it all, Watson is also a very tough kid who always is playing hard.”

Last season, the Chargers finished the year 18-5 with Watson at the point guard spot and have the talent to make a deep run in Illinois Class 3A this upcoming season.

“I think we are good enough to win state. Everybody from last year is back, besides one big who didn’t start. That’s a great thing and we did pretty good last year,” said Watson. “We have a lot of guys on our team that can score, so I just have to get everyone involved. I have to keep everyone happy to win games. We have to play together to win games and that’s on me.”

Watson was asked if he had a message for Husker fans?

“Go Big Red. It’s going to be a great year this year and a great year next year when the new freshman hit Lincoln,” said the senior.

Watson is the nation’s No. 63 overall player according to Scout.com.
