Kennedy Adds Another

I know that Kennedy has been after this guy hard for the past year. He appears to be yet another player who can come in and make an imediate impact for a team that needs to fill some depth. I do not know much about this guy except for what is listed below, but I have faith Kennedy sees something in him.

(SID) OXFORD, Miss. - Andy Kennedy continues to strengthen his Ole Miss basketball team in the late signing period, announcing the addition of JUCO forward Terrence Watson to a national letter of intent Tuesday.
A 6-foot-5, 220-pound native of Detroit, Watson earned All-America honors this season after leading Mott Community College (Flint, Mich.) to the NJCAA Division II National Championship. Watson was the Defensive Player of the Year in the conference and helped the Bears post a 60-9 over his two seasons at MCC.
"Terrence was coached by one of the most respected coaches in junior college basketball in Steve Schmidt and experienced a high level of success," said Kennedy. "He is a high-character kid, who has the physical and mental makeup to provide an immediate impact."
Watson filled the stat line for the Bears this year with averages of 12.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 3.4 blocks and 2.8 steals. He recorded eight double-doubles, including a 27-point, 12-rebound performance against Schoolcraft College.
Watson narrowly missed a triple-double against Alpena Community College with 19 points, 14 boards and eight assists, along with four steals.
"Terrence brings versatility to the forward slot," Kennedy said. "Defensively, he provides a true presence with his 7-foot-1 reach, and can guard any position on the floor."
