Williams on fast track

Four-star guard Kameron Williams has five schools on his list, but will they all get visits?

Things are beginning to move quickly for four-star shooting guard Kameron Williams. The Baltimore (Md.) Mt. St. Joseph's standout recently made his first official visit, and now he is hosting coaches for in-home visits.

Williams' father, Kevin Williams, took out time to update his son's recruitment, which included a Tuesday night in-home visit from Ohio State Head Coach Thad Matta.

"It was an excellent, excellent visit," said Williams. "It was very informative on both ends, and Kam got to hear Coach Matta speak about his program and see how they would use him if he were to become an Ohio State Buckeye. Also he told Kam what his expectations would be for him, and what they could offer, and then what Kam could offer to Ohio State."

According to Williams, his son could soon be visiting the Columbus, Ohio campus.

"We're working that out right now to see if that is something we would like to do," said Williams of a potential visit. "If that is going to happen, it is something that will happen very quickly. When I say very quickly, I mean within a week's time or maybe even less."

While a visit to Ohio State is up in the air, Miami already had Williams on campus. The Hurricanes have long been considered one of the schools most heavily involved with Williams, and they only helped their cause on the visit.

"It was more than we expected," said Williams of the trip to Coral Gables. "It was Kam's first official visit and he had a blast. They did everything that they could to show him the love. They pulled out all the stops and we had a great time."

Along with Ohio State and Miami, Williams says his son is still considering Wake Forest, Marquette, and Syracuse.

However Williams says that right now things are beginning to pick up in a big way.

"Kam has talked to people and mentioned his five schools and that he will make five visits to those schools," Williams explained. "I honestly don't know if that will come to bat. It seems like he is on the fast track to picking a school."

He then quickly added, "It is really, really up in the air."

For now the elder Williams is just trying to help his son through one of the biggest decisions of his life.

"I am just telling him to have an open mind and just be open," exclaimed Williams. "He is just trying to wade his way through this and I am just trying to support him in any decision that he makes. He knows he has a skill that these schools need, and we just want to take our time through the process to make the right decision because this is a life changing decision."
