Missouri continued its local recruiting momentum on Friday night as four-star Class of 2018 guard Torrence Watson pledged to the Tigers on Twitter.

The 6-foot-4 Watson was previously committed to Ohio State but he opted to open up his recruitment in late August. The native of St. Louis decided to stay in-state for his college commitment the second time around as he becomes the Tigers’ third commitment in the Class of 2018.

Watson joins three-star guard Javon Pickett and three-star junior college forward K.J. Santos as the Tigers have done a great job of stockpiling talent since the spring arrival of new head coach Cuonzo Martin.

A noted scorer, Watson averaged 29 points and seven rebounds per game as a junior at Whitfield High School.
