ELON, N.C. — St. Louis area native and former Mizzou guard Torrence Watson has found a new home.
Watson told 5 On Your Side Sports Director Frank Cusumano on Wednesday that he would be continuing his playing career at Elon University.
Watson was scored more than 2,500 points at Whitfield High School before committing to Cuonzo Martin and the Tigers.
In three years at Mizzou, Watson averaged 4.8 points, 1.2 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game. Watson saw his minutes per game decline to just 7.2 in his third year with the program. He had averaged 7.1 points in 22.8 minutes per game his freshman season in 2018-2019.
Guards Mark Smith and Xavier Pinson have also transferred from Mizzou so far following the 2020-21 season. Smith will be heading to Kansas State and Pinson is joining LSU.
