Providence gained a verbal commitment from one of the prospects they pursuing the hardest in the 2017 recruiting cycle on Saturday, 6′-8″ post Nate Watson of Bishop O’Connell (VA).
Watson is a borderline top 100 prospect in the 2017 class, and given Providence’s post situation, projects as potentially playing early for the Friars.
One of the most productive interior players in the Under Armour Association (playing for DC Premier), Watson joins Dajour Dickens, a center from Virginia, in the class.
With several high-major foes to beat out to land Watson’s services, head coach Ed Cooley is undoubtedly quite pleased to add a player of Watson’s caliber to an interior that is still smarting from the loss of Ben Bentil to the NBA.
