T-Will To 49ers

Terrence Williams is a 49ers. The hometown scoring ace gave the thumbs up to Alan Major's team this week.

It's no minor thing what Charlotte coach Alan Major is doing. The first-year head coach of the 49ers, on Tuesday, received his second commitment from an in-state player.

Terrence Williams, a 6-foot-3 scorer out of West Mecklenburg High in Charlotte, gave the Niners the nod after looking hard at College of Charleston and East Carolina.

"He said that he loves the coaching staff and wanted to stay home and give back to the home team," Carolina Elite coach Chris Hardy told Scout.com.

Williams is one of the top scoring threats in his home state as a senior.

Major's plan of recruiting in-state players is being executed. Last month, the 49ers accepted a commitment from Fayetteville area center Mike Thorne, a promising big man who turned in an exemploray summer. That gives Major two in-staters, one big and one athlete in his first full class at the helm.

"Within six hours of him getting the job, he was on Terrence. They like him know that they wanted him to be a part of their program," West Meck coach Kirby said.

Williams averaged 25.3 points per game as a junior.
