Williams Could Head In Different Direction

Latavious Williams disappeared for much of the summer, but resurfaced in Las Vegas. The 6-foot-8 post threat is also looking at the recruiting process and he might have to go a different route.

During July, Latavious Williams wasn't the most active, but he did end up in Las Vegas playing for a new team. The 6-8, 195-pound power forward showed up with Brandon Bass Elite

"I went down there and played good," Williams said. "The team played well, especially for my first time playing with that team."

Williams, a standout at Starkville (Miss.) High, is a talented basketball player, that uses his length to block shots and is capable of stepping out to 15-feet and knock down jumpers.

Although he's a player on the court, Williams hasn't been getting much college attention lately. He said Mississippi State, Virginia, Baylor, Clemson, Connecticut and Xavier are the schools showing interest.

Despite claiming interest from some high level schools, Williams doesn't have scholarship offers from most of them. In the long run, Williams might have to go a different direction.

"It's been pretty good for me," he said about his recruitment. "I haven't gotten any new offers or anything like that, except some JUCO's having been looking at me now."

When asked if Junior College would likely be the route for him, Williams responded, "I hope not. If I have to do anything I might just go pro."

Williams, who fell out of Scout.com's post July Top 100, said he hasn't set up any official visit dates and doesn't have a time frame for a decision.
