Kansas Point Guard Commits
Watson (5-10, 160) recently told Rocket Digest that he chose Toledo over offers from Central Missouri State and Pittsburgh State. "The coaching staff caught my eye," said Watson when asked about his decision to commit to Toledo. He added, "the playing style of Coach Cross and the determination of Coach Sundvold (also)."
Watson also noted that he has a very favorable impression of Coach Cross. "He is not only a basketball coach, but he will help me grow as a person and he cares more about my academics and preparing me for the world, instead of just life as a basketball player," Watson explained.
Neil has not visited the University of Toledo yet, but he said that he is planning his visit with coaches Gene Cross and Bob Sundvold.
Last season Watson averaged 17 points, 8 assists, 3 steals, and 2 rebounds per game. So far this season he is averaging 18 points, 6 assists, 3 steals, and 3 rebounds per game.
"My biggest strengths on and off the court are my social skills and I'm a people person," said Watson. "I can get along with almost anybody."
As Watson prepares for college basketball next season, he has one area of his game that he is working on with the biggest emphasis. "I'm working on my defense the most, to prepare for basketball next year," Neil said.
Assuming he signs with the Rockets during the normal signing period, Neil joins three others that signed with Toledo during the early signing period. They are forwards Devin Russell, Jordan Dressler, and Hayden Humes. Coach Cross and his staff are expected to bring in at least one more player in the 2009 recruiting class, likely a guard.
