Quinton Watkins's commitment to USC during the high school season did not last through the summer as both parties decided to go different directions. Now, Watkins, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Dominguez High School in Compton, Calif., is eyeing some of the top mid-major programs in the west.
Also considering offers from Washington State, Nebraska and Utah, Watkins is most impressed with San Diego State and Nevada.
"I just had a great visit to San Diego State last Monday," said Watkins. "I liked the city and the coaching staff a lot. And Coach Fisher is a great coach.
"Nevada also seems like a great place to be and somewhere I can get better."
An athletic lefty, who can both slash to the basket and lock his man down defensively, Watkins is hoping to land at a school where he can grow both on and off the court.
"I'm looking for a place where I can be around good people, and I want to play in a program where I will get better and grow as a player."
Watkins, who averaged 14 points per game as a junior, is the No. 83 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
