New Boston University men's basketball coach Joe Jones has received another big commitment early in his tenure with the Terriers as he landed a verbal commitment from Philadelphia Boys' Latin point guard Maurice Watson, the 5'9" floor general announced in a press conference this morning.
Watson is a two-star player rated as a 88 on ESPN.com, making him the No. 29-ranked point guard in the class of 2012, according to the website's database.
The commitment from Watson is the second Jones has received in the past month from the class of 2012, as Connecticut shooting guard John Papale. Watson has been praised by several recruiting outlets for his ball distribution skills and his savvy decision-making, as well as his speed.
Watson selected BU after it made the cut of his final four schools last week, a list that also included the University of Virginia, Hofstra University and La Salle University.
