Quinton Watkins has a plan in place. With a large number of high-major schools involved in his recruitment, the 6-foot-3, 175-pound shooting guard from Dominguez High School in Compton, Calif., has decided to wait until the late signing period to sign a Letter-of-Intent.
"No decision has been made yet," said Watkins. "I am going to wait until the late signing period to sign my Letter-of-Intent. I want to make sure that I get my SAT test score done, which I am going to take in December. Illinois, San Diego State, Nevada, Pepperdine, New Mexico, New Mexico State and Washington are the main schools I am interested in right now.
"All of the schools on my list have offered expect for Washington and New Mexico State," he added. "Washington, San Diego State, Illinois, Nevada, San Francisco, Pepperdine and New Mexico State are the schools that have been to my school to watch me practice in the gym."
Now that his recruitment has been put on hold for the time being, Watkins, the No. 83 ranked player in the class of 2007, is looking forward to his senior campaign.
Since the four-star prospect has decided to sign late, he can focus all of his attention on the upcoming season.
"We have our first practice of the year on Saturday, and I can't wait," said Watkins. "The first game of the year is on December 9. I am the only returning starter coming back this year, but we still should have a good year coming up.
"We were 26-6 last year and lost in the CIF semifinals," he added. "I am just real excited about the upcoming season, and it can't get here soon enough."
