CLAY — Clay-Chalkville senior third baseman E.J. Watson on Thursday made his college commitment.
Watson will play college baseball at Alabama A&M University in Huntsville.
“It means everything to me to be playing at the next level,” Watson said. “It’s something I’ve been working hard to achieve my whole life.”
Watson said he projects to be a second baseman at Alabama A&M. Watson is a solid defender with good speed. He can play any infield position and in the outfield. He said he needs to be more consistent at the plate and build up some strength.
Watson also held scholarship offers from Lawson State Community College, Miles College and Paine College in Augusta, Ga. He was also being recruited by Middle Tennessee State.
