Evaluation & Interview: 2018 PG Brandon Williams

ENCINO, Calif. -- Brandon Williams was the focal point for the Scout.com crew in the Crespi/Loyola match up on Wednesday. Here's an evaluation of his play, plus the 6-foot-1 guard breaks down his game and his recruitment.

On Wednesday, Brandon Williams went for nine points and helped Encino (Calif.) Crespi knocked off Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola in a hard fought game. 

Williams, a 2018 point guard, has pretty good size at 6-foot-1 with long arms and while he looks young and certainly could grow, he's every bit tall enough to be a successful high major point guard.

Williams' has terrific quickness, which helps him on both ends of the court. On defense he moves his feet very well laterally, while his quick hands help him rack up deflections and steals every time out. Offensively, he has a very good first step that helps give him a head start to the lane almost at will.

The sophomore is a capable three-point shooter, while he also possesses the ball skills and vision to create for teammates in half court and transition settings.

Williams, who averages 13.7 points a game, has used an impressive several month stretch to propel his stock towards the top of the West Coast point guard class in 2018.

Among the schools already involved in Williams' recruitment include ArizonaCaliforniaPepperdineNC StateVirginia and USC.
