Las Vegas: 2019 wing Noah Williams holds early Washington offer

LAS VEGAS - Noah Williams has been one of the more impressive 2019 prospects in Las Vegas this week. Here's an intro to his game and recruitment.

The 2019 recruiting class is absolutely loaded nationally and given that the Northwest hasn’t been short of talent lately, it’s no surprise that the region will be represented when Scout updates rankings.

One new prospect that already has a high major offer is Noah Williams, a 6-foot-4, 175-pound wing from Seattle O’Dea.

Playing for Rotary Select in Las Vegas, Williams has impressed with his vision, ball skills, athleticism and ability to score off bounce or jumper.

“I’m a little bit of a shooter,” Williams said. “I can get to the basket, get to the line and I’m explosive; if I have to dunk on you then I’ll dunk on you. I’m working on my first step.”

There is one early offer for Williams, with a handful of others watching him.

Washington has offered and I’m getting looks from Oregon, Oregon State, Seattle and Washington State,” he said.

The offer from Washington was a big moment for the rising sophomore.

“My mom and dad were sitting in the room with me and I was at a loss for words. It was all smiles,” Williams said.

“I love (Lorenzo) Romar; I’ve known him since I was a little kid. He’s a great mentor. I love the whole coaching staff over there.”

It’s early in Williams’ recruitment but he says location will play a factor in where he goes.

“I’m not really trying to leave home,” he said. “I want to stay close to my mom.”
