Williams Commits After Visit
When you've been through the recruiting process already, sometimes it can be easier to decide the second time around. Enter Nick Williams.
The former Kansas State guard visited Cincinnati this weekend and ended his recruiting process. "I want to have a chance to be the best player I can and play for a well respected coach and good program," Williams said. "Cincinnati has everything to offer."
Williams, now at Chipola Junior College, averaged 9 points a game as a freshman at Kansas State. He'll play this season for Ryan Cross before finding his way to Cincinnati where he'll have two years to play. He'll be adding more guard duties this year.
"He played some at the point last year but he'll play the point for us this year," Cross said. "I think for him to have a chance to play beyond college that'll be the position he'll have to play. [Cincinnati] will play him at the point and he'll be a double-figure scorer."
The native of Arlington, Tex., played high school ball at Mansfield and AAU hoops with the Ft. Worth Lions.
Juco big man Robert Whaley also visited Cincinnati the same weekend as Williams. Though the Bearcats did not receive a commitment from Whaley during the visits, sources told TheInsidersHoops.com that the trip was successful and the Bearcats were hoping to hear something in the coming days.
