Akil Watson Guard (NY)- Watson  is 6’7 wing and was our most efficient player. Watson is a willing passer that puts his teammates in easy positions to score; His length makes it easy to shoot over shorter defenders. Watson can score from all three levels and with his improved athleticism. That helps him finish at the cup with ease. Akil was selected as the camp MVP and Best Prospect because of his well rounded game. In the upcoming future we see Watson moving to the lead guard position. He will also be one of the top prospects in the class when the national rankings come out. Watson will be attending the prestigious Don Bosco Prep NJ as an incoming freshmen.
