Williams sees stock rise

Three-star guard Kameron Williams was one of the top scorers all spring in the Nike EYBL, and high-major interest is coming his way.

One of the players who proved himself the most during the Nike EYBL was Kameron Williams. Playing with Nike Baltimore Elite, Williams was one of the best scorers on the entire circuit, and his recruitment has picked up in a big way this spring.

Due to his strong showing in the EYBL, Williams received an invite to the Kevin Durant Skills Academy, and he feels it was a good experience.

"It was a great experience playing against some of the best wing players in the nation and seeing how my skills stack up," said Williams. "I learned to stay positive and consistent from the coaches."

When it comes to his recruitment, several schools are making Williams a priority.

"I would say Miami is really heavy on me," Williams explained. "I have a good relationship with Coach (Jim) Larranaga and Coach (Chris) Caputo. I have been in close contact with them."

He continued, "Also I am hearing a lot from Wake Forest and Providence."

Wake Forest has shown him a lot of interest recently and are making it clear that he is a priority recruit.

"Coach (Jeff) Bzdelik and Coach (Walt) Corbean have been talking to me about getting better and how I would fit in with their offense," Williams explained.

Providence brought in some major scoring punch in the 2012 class, and they are hoping to do it again in 2013 with Williams.

"I like Coach (Ed) Cooley a lot," said Williams. "He seems like a real good guy and the whole staff is talking to me about coming in right away and having a place in their backcourt."

At this point Williams doesn't know when he would like to make his decision, but he does know what he is looking for from a school.

"I am just looking for somewhere that I will mature both on and off the court and help me become the best basketball player I can be," said Williams.

Currently Williams is ranked as a three-star prospect the No. 26 shooting guard in the country.
