Talented center Darryl Watkins, 7-0, 220-pounds from Paterson Catholic High School, is likely now to take his time now in making a decision.
Over the weekend, Watkins came close to making a commitment to Villanova but never actually gave his verbal to head coach Jay Wright. Instead, Watkins will now take some more time to think about his college decision.
Watkins has the potential to be a top 20 player but needs to establish more consistency in his offensive approach. He is a physical talent for sure and if properly motivated, Darryl is one of the best big men in the country.
Watkins told us he was previously interested in Syracuse, Villanova, Pittsburgh, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Connecticut, Virginia, and St. John's. Each of these schools is still being considered.
A source close to Watkins told us that Darryl may be waiting on what Marquis Webb does in his recruiting process. Webb and Watkins are very close and play together with the Playaz AAU program.
