Best as i can tell, he appears to be the 6th man for St. John's, though that is one of the best teams in the country so maybe offering their 6th man when he's still just a sophmore or junior is the way to land a guy who will become a star recruit.   

I found a box score from a recent game in Myrtle Beach against Long Island Luterhan where he played 24 minutes off the bench, scored 8 points on 4 of shooting (2-2 from 3) and grabbed 4 boards.

Found a couple of tweets about him (if you want to feel old, note that in the game Finest Magazine was tweeting about, he was playing against Muggsy Bogues' Grandson.  Not son, grandson):  

Finest Magazine[/url] [url=]@FinestMagazine I Like St Johns 6’7 sophomore Christian Watson. Swiss Army knife wing. Can defend the 1-4, and has a versatile skill set offensively. 37-12 St Johns. 3:13 left in the half.=inherit2:13 PM · Nov 30, 2019 from Baltimore, MD=inherit·Twitter for iPhone

 Endless Motor Sports[/url] [url=]@endless_motor·Dec 8, 2019 A few underclassmen standouts on Day 2 of the DC Hoopfest: 22’ Rodney Rice (Bullis) - 6’4 G has nice pullup game from 3 to compliment solid handle & good positional size @rodneyrice__ 22’ Christian Watson (St Johns) - 6’7 wing w/good length & nice stroke from 3 @ChrisWatson_11

Note also that Watson's teammate, St John's star player Ismael Leggett, will be a freshman on Rhode Island next year.
