JASON WATKINS, OT, 6-7, 287, 5.0, LAKELAND, FLORIDA (LAKE GIBSON SENIOR HS):
JH: How is your season going?
JW: We are still playing in the semi-finals. We have been playing on the road, but we will be home this weekend against Lake City Columbia. They are 12-1 on the year and we are 11-2 and they are ranked number two in the state. We are ready for the game and anything can happen. We will have the home crowd, which will help us as well."
JH: How are you playing?
JW: "I am playing good and I am getting better each week. That is the good thing about it, the fact that I am working hard and getting better."
JH: How is recruiting going?
JW: "Two minutes ago Auburn came by the house. Things are picking up because December has rolled and we have had seven coaches call already. We had five coaches at practice today and we had an intense practice, so I guess he was real happy."
JH: What is your visit schedule?
JW: "I am going to Michigan State this weekend and in two weeks I am going up to Oklahoma. Then in January, I have Florida (1-9) and then LSU (1-15)."
JH: Do you have a leader or at least a favorite at this point?
JW: "I was mostly into basketball when I was little. So, I don't have a favorite right now. I just want to take visits and compare. I want to find the school that seems like home for me and I want the school that is best for me academically. I have to make sure that I will be able to get along with the players and coaches, and that will be very important to me. I want to see which school is the best for me all around and I won't be able to make my decision until after I take my final visit."
JH: What are you thoughts on the Sooners?
JW: "I really don't know too much about them, except they have a great tradition. That is why I want to take my visits, because I really don't know much more about them than that. I know they are winning a lot of games, so they must be doing something right. But outside of that, I don't know much about them."
