Mitchell basketball standout Lawrence Watt picked up his first offer from Saint Leo over the weekend.

Watt, a senior, said he was offered by Saint Leo coach Lance Randall after a team camp at the school.

"I wasn't expecting it at all," Watt said of the offer. "My high school coach told me that (Saint Leo) was going to be watching our games, but other than that I had no previous contact with the coaching staff or the team. It just happened that day.

"I'm thankful for the offer and appreciate the coach's decision to give me the opportunity."

Last season, Watt averaged 15.6 points and 6.5 rebounds for the Mustangs. He is top returner on that finished 22-6 and advanced to the Class 6A region quarterfinals as a district runnerup.
