    Floyd lands Kenny Pratt's nephew very quietly

    Kind of a vague, but interesting story on DeShun Watkins "appearing" on UTEP's roster for next season. Previously was committed to Missouri, but backed out in July. He is Kenny Pratt's nephew, so that's the connection/advantage for Floyd.

    Essentially the kid has no recruiting profile, but had interest from Kansas, Kentucky, A&M and a few other majors. Also says that it seems like he is a walk-on at this point based on the number of scholarships available. Very unusual. I'm intrigued how this will all play out.

    Here's the link from MINER RUSH - the UTEP SBNation site. Post is by Adrian Mac.

    What's the over/under on years before UTEP is investigated by the NCAA?



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?
