The 5-foot-11, 160-pound Watson picked the Cornhuskers over Creighton and Tennessee, among other offers. He went to Nebraska on an official visit this weekend and made his decision shortly thereafter.
Watson, a native of Westchester, Ill., is ranked the No. 86 player in the country in the class of 2015 by Rivals. He's the second 2015 player to commit to Nebraska, joining three-star forward Michael Jacobson.
Nebraska went 19-13 last season and made the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1998.
