Quote from Bison, that I was in disagreement with:

“He will get offers from BCS-conference programs, possibly a lot of them if he takes his time.”

Some updates on Watson via Josh Verlin of City of Basketball Love on twitter:

Maurice Watson, Jr.: Creighton, Illinois, Vanderbilt, Temple, Purdue, Penn State, Xavier, Kansas, Drexel. Wants to make decision “soon.”

Watson, a BU transfer, tells me he’s got an in-home visit with Illinois this week + visiting Creighton this weekend. Planning more visits.

I don’t think anyone is claiming that Watson will be a superstar at the high-major level, but I maintain that he can contribute at that level and would be an immediate upgrade at many high major programs. No one has claimed that he will “change” a program or is “the last piece to a championship puzzle.”

So far, the high major “interest” certainly appears confirmed.
