Difficult Decision Faces Williams

The "gut feeling" is a tried and true technique for picking your college. Big man Jordan Williams has a feeling in his stomach but at this point its more nerves than anything else.

This is the time of year where the rubber meets the road and kids hunker down to make decisions. For some, the process is easier said than done.

"It's tough right now," center Jordan Williams told Scout.com. "I keep telling people I am but things come up. I'd love to say I'll commit in a few days but I can't say right now."

Williams, a 6-foot-8 big man out of Torrington (Conn.) High, ranks No. 99 on Scout.com's list. However, he's No. 1 in the eyes of St. John's Norm Roberts and Maryland's Gary Williams. Both want him badly but he's torn.

"A few days ago I was down to two but I don't want to rush into a decision," Williams said. "It wasn't anything specific. My family wants me to make the right decision and really think about and not worry to decide just because the period is coming up. I hate to keep you guys wondering."

Typically when there's an inability to secure a decision, it denotes a problem with the final schools on the list. Williams insists that isn't the case. He's careful not to offend either program. "It's not like I'm saying they aren't good enough for me, I'm just keeping my eyes open."

Massachusetts, Indiana, Marquette, Arizona and Xavier remain in contact. While Williams is non-committal at this point, he could visit a program or two from that list.

"More schools have been calling and I'm trying to get a feel for more schools."
