Williams Has High Level Offers

After junior wing Teondre Williams cast aside football for the roundball his game expanded and now he has plenty of high-majors trailing him.

As a sophomore, Teondre Williams wrestled with the question: football or basketball? The 6-foot-4 Norcross (Ga.) Meadowcreek standout finally locked in on his favorite sport and good things began happening.

"It helped me trying to get focused on basketball," the 2008 guard said of his decision. "I think I've got more confidence in myself and on defense. I've been practicing more shooting and my shot is starting to fall."

Meadowcreek, which is paced by senior standout Chris Allen, begins its quest for the state title on Saturday against Kennesaw Mountain.

As Williams drives toward the title, he'll do so armed with a 16-point per game scoring average and an offensive arsenal that is beginning to round itself out. Williams' athleticism allows him to maneuver and pull the trigger quickly. "Most people know I can drive and they respect that. That opens up my outside shot."

Speaking of pulling the trigger quickly, five schools have already offered the wing. Cincinnati, Clemson, Georgia, Florida State and Tennessee are jockeying for position. Most of the schools have sent head coaches to see him this season.

"I know all those teams like to get out and run and I play better on a running team than a team set up to play half court offense."

Williams has been on UGA's campus and Clemson's as well. Two weeks ago he made his way to Florida State. "We got there a little late but when we left I was impressed with the atmosphere but I was impressed with how he coached," Williams said. "They lost the game by one but it was a good game and the visit went well."

Williams will run with the World Wide Renegades this spring.
