Flint Carman Ainsworth (Mich.) junior guard Denzel Watts discusses his current offers from major division one schools and his eagerness to earn more offers and a national ranking.

Flint Carman Ainsworth (Mich.) 6-foot- 0, 165 –pound junior guard Denzel Watts has become one of Michigan's top recruits in the class of 2013 currently averaging 20.5ppg, 6.2 apg and 3.5 spg and earning offers from Baylor, Oakland, Detroit Mercy, USC, Florida State and Western Michigan and gaining interest from Syracuse, Iowa St, Florida, Purdue, Providence and Northwestern.

"I am blessed to have so many offers, especially from prestigious schools like Baylor, Florida State and USC. Watts said. "I am currently getting a lot of mail and calls from Syracuse, Iowa St, Florida, Purdue, Providence and Northwestern. Hopefully I can turn those looks into offers soon."

Watts hopes to be able to visit some schools in the summer, to get better feel for the schools and the teams.

"Right now, I plan to visit Baylor, Florida St and Syracuse." Watts replied. "I have the choice to make my visits official or unofficial visits, so I still have some time to decide that. I also may try to fit some more visits into my schedule for the summer."

Watts is eager to start AAU and earn more offers and says right now he is in no rush to commit anywhere.

"I plan to continue to stay with my current AAU Team which is The Pride." Watts said. "I am no rush to commit anywhere, I want to enjoy the recruiting process and take as many visits as I can."

While Watts is in no rush to commit, he did mention a key factor that will go into his decision.

"The first thing that I focus on when picking a school is the education." Watts replied. "I would love to play basketball professionally but if that doesn't happen my education & degree is my back up. I hope to major in either Sports Medicine or Communications."

Watts is never satisfied with just being good and one day hopes to be great, he hopes to earn a national ranking over the summer.

"I always strive be the best." Watt said. "I would love to receive a national ranking and be among the great players in the country. That takes hard work and dedication and that's something I have."
