Offers come in for Williams

Troy Williams is pulling in scholarship offers and has emerged as one of the premier players in the 2013 class.

In the 2013 class not too many players have been more successful playing against 17-and under competition than Troy Williams. Playing for the Boo Williams Summer League on the Nike EYBL circuit, Williams has been one of the more productive players and is seeing the scholarship offers come flowing in.

For the No. 11 ranked player in the country it has been a good start to his 17-and under experience. Williams was a driving force in getting Boo Williams qualified for the Peach Jam, and opened up eyes in the process.

"The spring went real well," said Williams. "I have been getting my name out there more. I have been playing pretty well. I am confident. I don't have the biggest chest and arms, but I can jump with these guys, so that gives me an advantage."

He continued, "It is just going real good. I am getting to the basket, drawing fouls, getting my teammates open, and stuff like that so it is real good."

Being the nephew of the legendary Boo Williams, Troy is able to get advice and learn from one of the guys who has been around for a long time. Even now when Williams is ranked as one of the premier players in the country, Boo Williams is making sure to keep things in perspective for his nephew.

"It feels good, but like my uncle says it is just a number," Williams explained. "I have to keep getting better and playing hard. If I do, more things will come my way."

When it comes to recruiting there should be no surprise that some of the heavy hitters in the region are showing Williams a lot of attention.

"Mostly I have been hearing from Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Alabama, DePaul, Texas, Virginia, and South Florida," Williams listed. "I have offers from Georgetown, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Texas, and South Alabama."

Having all of these offers just means that when it comes time to make a decision, Williams knows it will be a tough choice.

"It lets me know that I have to take my decision seriously and it won't be easy," explained Williams. "When I make my decision next year between my junior and senior year, I know I will have a big decision to make."

For now Williams is mostly focused on getting better and improving on the floor, and he doesn't yet know what will put one school over the top with his decision, but there is no doubt that school will be getting an impact player.
