Watford plans to announce his decision during the Jordan Brand Classic on April 20
Watford grew up in Indiana which could hurt. I'm hopeful CNO can work some magic but if he gets an offer from Duke I'm sure it will be hard to turn down. I hear he is also tight with Hardaway and Miller at Memphis.We get Watford, and damn. Top 10 class for sure.
There are a handful who claim they're close to TW who also say Memphis isn't what it's been reported to be in terms of his interest. Duke? That's a game changer as it should be.I hear he is also tight with Hardaway and Miller at Memphis.

The chances of Bama landing TW are better now than they have been, no doubt. However, he's always wanted to stay as close to home (MB) as he could.
His is another interesting story in recruiting, ya know? Let's set Bama fandom aside and consider ...Sounds good to me give the man a piece of paper and a pen.
Dammit, @TerryP. I was gonna post this... Lol.New Alabama coach Nate Oats visits with 5-star recruit Trendon Watford | Zagsblog
After landing the Alabama job on Wednesday, Nate Oats wasted no time visiting with the state’s top uncommitted prospect.
Oats and his staff flew to visit with 6-foot-8 forward Trendon Watford while Watford was on spring break in Destin, Fla.
“The stressed the style and speed of play,” Ernest Watford, Trendon’s father, told ZAGSBLOG. “They can exploit matchups using Trendon’s versatility and impressive playmaking abilities.”
He added: “[Trendon] likes the idea that Oats is going to change the culture at ‘Bama…The guy is pretty damn ‘sharp.'”
Watford is down to a final five of Alabama, LSU, Indiana, Memphis and Duke and plans to announce April 20 at the Jordan Brand Classic in Las Vegas.
If Oats were able to land him next month it would be a major coup as he takes over the SEC program. Watford has won three straight state titles for Mountain Brook.
According to 247sports, Watford is ranked No. 27 nationally and is the No. 5 power forward.
“If they hire somebody in the next few weeks or next week and they start recruiting me,” Watford told ZAGSBLOG this week, “then we’ll just go from there.”
It hid right.More to come. Word this morning is Kira is staying and Trendon is on his way as well.
(Just me playing to make sure that hides right...nothing to hide there so don't read more into it. Click to remove blurring effect.)
Here's one for you.So the Watford family was super-impressed that CNO prioritized a visit like he did?
