Williams Wants To Look Around

Calvin Williams, a 6-foot-7 power forward out of Memphis Hillcrest is back on the market. An early commitment to Colorado appears to have been retracted and he's going to look at his options.

As has been the case with a number of very early commitments from the Class of 2005, Calvin Williams, a power forward out of Memphis Hillcrest, has re-opened his recruitment.

"He had took a visit out there to Colorado and when he got back he and I talked about it," Calvin Williams, Sr., said. "I told him if he wasn't sure then he might as well open it up because the time is narrowing down.

"I guess it was the distance and being that was the first visit. If there's some schools closer to home that are just as good with the same amount of exposure, then you want to see what they have to offer."

Williams' father said that his son would like to hear from Auburn, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Arkansas, "you know, schools that are closer to home where his friends and family can get to him to support him."

Auburn, Arkansas-Little Rock, Arkansas State, Miami and Colorado are set to do in-home visits this month.

Is there any way that Colorado can get him back? "If they start recruiting him. He didn't say that they are out; he just said that he wasn't sure. If he had never made a verbal out there then I imagine that they would still be doing what everybody else is doing."

According to Williams' father, the situation with Colorado didn't pan out because the kid simply moved to quickly with his decision.

"I think we got caught up in the hoopla and made a quick decision. After the summer circuit, he saw that a lot of folks were interested. We rushed it. After thinking about it a long time and getting out on the summer circuit and some of the major colleges showing interest, we rushed it."
