Steve Alford's finest season in Albuquerque paid its first dividend on the recruiting trail last week. "I'm hoping that it just gets better," Williams said. "From what I've seen, I would expect it to. I don't know if it'll top the kind of year they're having now but they're doing some damage."
"Obviously, the season they're having right now played a big deal. I got a real good vibe from the coaches. I don't think it's a fluke, they're going to keep getting better."
Williams committed early to UCLA but the relationship faded and eventually the commitment dissipated. Going through the process a second time forced Williams to keep his radar up.
"I wouldn't say nervous but I'm more careful and I have more anticipation. With that situation, you're hesitant to marry another school. You want to make sure it's the right situation and I think it is."
