George Mason adds another verbal commitment

ESPN is reporting that Talisha Watts, a 6-2 forward from Brookeville, has given a verbal commitment to George Mason for the 2011 season. ESPN has been high on Watts for a while; here's how they evaluated her after the Deep South Classic AAU tournament in April:

At 6-2, the junior from Virginia is all arms and legs, with and incredible wing span. What makes you take notice of Watts is her ability to finish in transition, which she does well with both hands. Though her ball handling needs improvement, she is quick enough to grab a rebound and dribble the ball up the floor to start the fast break. Watts is a very strong defender, she doesn't shy away from contact despite her slight frame. Opposing players tend not to attack her side on defensive for fear of having their shot blocked. Adding a consistent mid-range jumper well help her become even more of a scoring threat.

Watts becomes the second 2011 player to choose the Patriots, joining New York point guard Karin Robinson.
