2018 PG Brandon Williams watches two of top suitors in action

Brandon Williams, one of the west's top 2018 guards, was in Tucson on Sunday and he watched two of the teams recruiting him the hardest in Arizona and USC.

Over the course of his sophomore season, Brandon Williams has established himself as one of the top point guard prospects on the west in 2018.

The 6-foot-1, 165-pound sophomore from Encino (Calif.) Crespi has good size and length with terrific quickness, ability to change speeds and create for teammates and himself.

On Sunday, Williams took an unofficial visit to Tucson to see two of the teams that are recruiting him the hardest in Arizona and USC.

"It was a crazy experience with the atmosphere," Williams said. "I haven't experienced anything like that. In Tucson, everyone goes to the games and supports the team. It's amazing how the crowd buys into the team, loves them and supports them."

Williams has long rooted for UA which could aid the Wildcats in their pursuit of him.

"It's still one my favorite schools and dream schools as a kid," Williams said. "I'm never going to take that away; it will always be one of my dream schools. Especially because Stanley Johnson is one of my favorite players, who was in the same area I am and chose Arizona.

"It's one of my dream schools but whether or not that will play a role in my decision I won't know until later on."

With USC offering Williams an early scholarship offer, he's had plenty of time to learn how he would fit into the Trojans program.

"I definitely think I can fit in there with their transition because they like to run," Williams said. "I like how they get out and just play. I think I would fit right into that style of play, going up and down and creating for my teammates."

Even though he's already been on USC's campus, Williams plans on stopping by again shortly.

"I'll check out USC soon. I don't know exactly when but I'll be there soon," he said. "They've been at a few of my games this year. My teammate is (USC signee) De'Anthony Melton, who is committed to USC, and coach (Andy) Enfield was at our last league game. They've really shown support with me and De'Anthony."
