Terrence Williams Makes College Pick

Terrence Williams made the call tonight and got his decision out of the way. The athletic and versatile 6-6 Rainier Beach (Wash.) star recently took a couple visits and was ready to get it done.

Louisville completed its recruiting class on Sunday with the addition of Rainier Beach (Wash.) 6-6, 205-pound versatile rising senior Terrence Williams.

Williams chose the Cardinals over Kansas, where he visited last weekend.

``Besides all of the accolades, they've got a real good coaching staff. You can't go wrong with them," Williams said. "If there's anyone in college whose going to make me a better young man, they're going to be it. I'm not saying Coach (Rick) Pitino's the only one, but he's one of the top guys – if not the top."

Williams, 16, is a strong, physical and athletic player who spends the majority of his time at the point – but will likely end up playing the majority of his time at shooting guard alongside recent Louisville pledge Andre McGee in college.

``Since we're going to the Big East, he can't play the point all the time," Williams said of McGee. "With both of us, it's a deadly backcourt."

In addition to McGee, Louisville has also gotten commitments from 7-footer Clarence Holloway, 6-10 Amir Johnson and 6-7 Lamar Roberson, who will spend a year at prep school this season. The Cardinals also recently landed Kansas transfer David Padgett.
