Williams Could Decide Soon

Jordan Williams took official visits to his two favorite schools over the course of the past two weekends. With the trips complete, a decision could come soon.

Two visits might be all Torrington (Conn.) High standout Jordan Williams needs to come up with a college decision.

The 6-foot-8, 245-pound big man, who proved himself as a high-major prospect in July, took recent trips to Maryland and St. John's and appears content on coming up with a decision between the two.

"Those are the only two that I had set and I'm not sure if I'm going to take anymore visits yet," Williams told Scout.com.

The last weekend in September, Williams traveled to College Park to met with Gary Williams and check out what Maryland had to offer.

"The campus was really big," he explained. "I went down to Washington, D.C. and had a great time down there. I had a great time. I liked it a lot. I like the gym. The Comcast Center was huge, so I liked that. It was really, really nice."

This past weekend, Williams took an official visit to St. John's, which was the first program to show interest in him, back during the summer of his sophomore year.

"The thing that stood out the most about St. John's is that everyone always underestimates St. John's somewhat because they haven't had the best record in the past few years, but I believe that they are on the rise and are at a turning point in their program. That's what really hit me the most while I was there."

Although it appears to be a two horse race between the Terps and Red Storm, if Williams decides to take another visit, it'll be to one of two schools.

"Marquette is still in the mix a little bit and UMass is in there a little bit, but mainly it's just those two," he said.

Williams, a four-star prospect, didn't give a specific date for a decision, but it's clear that he could make up his mind in the near future.

"I'd like to make the decision soon, but it's tough because I like both of the schools," Williams said. "This week I'm going to sit down with my parents and we are going to a have a long conversation about the pros and cons of each program and probably decide in the next couple weeks."
