Big Ten high on Watson

THE RIVALS150: Class of 2014 | 2015 | 2016
One of the standouts at The Finals of the Under Armour association was Illinois Wolves point guard Glynn Watson. Although on the small side for a point guard at 5-foot-11 and roughly 160 lbs., Watson consistently made the right decision when the ball was in his hands. He's a capable scorer and a clutch player as he showed when he hit a game-winner in double overtime to beat Game Elite.
For those reasons, he's become a hot commodity on the recruiting trail. The four-star floor general said he's received offers from Creighton, Iowa, Marquette, Maryland, Nebraska, Penn State and Purdue.
During June, Watson managed to visit two campuses and plans to see another sometime in the coming months.
"I took two visits last month to Nebraska and Creighton. I'm supposed to go visit Maryland, but we don't have a set date yet," Watson said.
Nebraska head coach Tim Miles and his staff did a good of making Watson feel at home when he arrived at their campus.
"The Nebraska visit went pretty good. I had never been down there. I liked it down there. I liked the people down there. It was a good visit."
According to Watson, his familiarity with attending a private school might work in Creighton's favor.
"The Creighton visit went well too. It's a private school and I go to a private school, so I like that. I got to play with their guys while I was there. It was fun."
Maryland just recently entered into the mix for Watson. They made the decision to target Watson in the 2015 class after their starting point guard Seth Allen decided to bolt for Virginia Tech.
"They said they had a point guard transfer and they weren't originally planning on going after a point guard, but now they are. They are in the Big Ten now, so I like that."
Like most of his peers, Watson will sit down and evaluate his options at the conclusion of the July recruiting periods.
"I'll probably cut down my list after July and then commit before high school season starts."
