Brennan Watkins (2021) played with tons of confidence and needs to be getting more college recruiting attention.
Confidence is a huge part of any basketball players game, and Brennon Watkins had more confidence than anyone else I saw this weekend. Against Team Factory, he pulled up for a deep 3 just 4 seconds into the game and drained it. The very next possession, he comes down the court, puts his defender on skates, and drains another 3 from the exact same spot. Watkins was not afraid to bring the ball up court against the best defender in the state (Chucky Hepburn) and was not afraid to guard Chucky as well.
We’ve seen Watkins play a handful of times and still surprised that more college coaches aren’t getting involved with him. He is the main ball-handler and quarterback on the full for a Marcus Denmon Elite team that won the UA RISE last year 16u and lead this 17u team to an 19-4 record.
Here’s a list of teams that Denmon has beat with Watkins at Point: Iowa Barnstormers, SW Illinois Jets, Team RWA, Team Factory RISE, Salt Lake Rebels, Team Knight Elite, Illini Magic, and Team KC. All teams that have D1 players on it.
Watkins is probably the best shooter we’ve seen this summer and we’ve seen a lot of really good ones. His ability to run a team is impressive, and we think more schools need to be checking into his services.
