He should have 2 years. Can only spend your first 2 years of eligibility at a JUCO.

Devarte was a high school senior in 2013.  Will have 2 years left assuming the year he missed at Delaware doesn't count against him.  Averaged 6.5 ppg, 7.7 rpg, and 1.7 bpg at Cape Fear CC last season.  Needs to work on FT % big time.

Strengths:
 Watson is a physically aggressive post that looks to dunk everything around the rim. He's well built with a strong frame, changes ends well to be a factor in transition, and elevates through contact to play above the rim.

Hence the word "missed".  ;)    Yes, I could have phrased that better.

Good deal. Thanks. Did not know if he might have 3 years since some kids are coming out after only one year of JUCO. Hoping for a Rodman like player for the interior who can rebound, run and fill on the break.

Nice get. Long and athletic. Exactly what we need in CUSA. Surround some length with good shooters and we are in business.
Always Bringin Da Ruckus!!

 Concerning Devarte... what will he be doing this year? Year off?

I like the DeVarte addition, good to see him sign.  When folks talk about what we're missing on the roster this year, it's rebounding and defense. That's what DeVarte will bring, should be a solid role guy for us.

Watched 3 minutes of his game tonight, had 2 nice blocks and caught an alley oop.  Don't think he will be too much of an offensive factor but he is athletic enough to alter a lot of shots for us.

Thanks for posting video.

It would also seem like he is use to playing in front of empty seats so that won't change for him next year.

I've been only negative this year. I've been positive the rest so I'll give myself a pass.

Watched most of the second half although his playing time was limited because of the score.

Watson wasn't much of a force on offense although he finished two nice dunks. He seemed to move in transition well, which could be a nice asset for us next year if we try to run and gun a lot.

His on ball defense wasn't the best but he recovered well and did force some missed shots in addition to his 6 blocks. He has a good vertical and his athleticism will be an upgrade for us around the rim on both sides of the ball.

Overall, it's hard to tell how his skill set will adapt to D-1 competition but he looks to be a decent pick up.

Nope. That's just how some people are. Will complain about lack of attendance and lack of winning by more if we win tonight.
