    Watson played with current CU targets Torren Jones and Jarron Hopkins in the Arizona Super 80 tournament and that's how I found out CU had reportedly offered him:

    Sounds like he's kind of a freak athlete, but a bit raw -- which explains the wide variation between the rankings above.

    SLAM:

    Recap of the 2011 FullCourt Press All West Camp:

    Sounds like he was a bit of an unknown prospect until recently when he started playing on some major AAU tournaments with the Magic.

    Watson is a great kid. Went virtually unknown till he played with Hopkins on the Compton Magic team this past spring and summer. He plays the wing well, he is very athletic and has lots of bounce. However, he is still very raw and needs to work on his ball handling skills along with becoming a more consistent shooter. Has lots of upside.

    Someone to keep an eye on. Not getting as much attention as the other Arizona kids for 2013, but Scout just put him in their top 100.
