Former Michigan State guard Rocket Watts is headed to the SEC.

Watts will be suiting up for Mississippi State next season, he announced on Saturday.

Watts spent two season with the Spartans before opting for the transfer portal. Last season, he averaged 7.7 points and 2.7 assists per game.

Watts was a major recruit for Michigan State in the class of 2019. According to 247Sports Composite rankings, Watts was the No. 7 combo guard and the No. 39 overall player in the country.

He played both guard positions during his time with Michigan State, but struggled as a point guard during his sophomore campaign. He averaged 2.7 assists and 1.6 turnovers per game, and his shooting efficiency took a dip. He made just over 25 percent of his 3-point attempts this season on a volume of 3.1 attempts per contest.

Michigan State is getting an infusion of talent this offseason. The Spartans are adding three blue-chip prospects in the class of 2021, including 5-star big man Max Christie. Tom Izzo also has a commitment from transfer guard Tyson Walker.
