Gonzaga Gets HS Soph Anton Watson

Gonzaga Gets Soph Anton Watson

High school sophomore Anton Watson has committed to Gonzaga.   The 6-7 forward averaged 19 points this season for Gonzaga Prep (Spokane, WA), leading the team to the Greater Spokane League title and third place at the State 4A tournament.   Watson was also named the 2017 Greater Spokane League MVP.   “It feels pretty good, it’s exciting,” Watson told spokesman.com of choosing the Sags. “It’s going to be a long wait for two years, but I’m anxious to get out and start playing and try to prove myself.”   “I think I could play a little 3 and 4,” added Watson. “My strength is my [basketball] IQ, I know how to play.”   Watson comes from a basketball family as his father Deon was a star at Idaho from 1991-94 and is the school’s all-time career leader in rebounds.   SB Nation’s Peter Woodburn likes the young Watson’s potential.   “Watson still has plenty of growing to do in his body, and he has plenty of time to do it as well,” Woodburn wrote. “He stands at 6-7 already, and if he grows a couple of inches over the years, you can expect to see him slide over the power forward position. If he stays at the same height, he will be a dangerous winger.”   Watson, who also had been in contact with Washington, Washington State and Idaho, is the Zags first recruit in the 2019 class.     For more basketball news go to http://www.blacktoptv.com/
