Michigan’s Watson says he’ll ‘explore other options’
Watson thanked the coaching staff and his teammates and said he’s enjoyed the relationships and the memories he’s made. The 6-foot-5 Watson played in 26 games this season as a sophomore, averaging 2.2 points and 5.2 minutes.
Watson’s announcement Thursday came after forward Brent Hibbitts said on his Twitter account Tuesday that he plans to transfer – with two years of eligibility remaining – after finishing his degree early and graduating this summer.
Hibbitts appeared in five games this season.
