Full court press for Kendall Williams

Clemson assistant basketball coach Josh Postorino was back in California earlier this week checking in on a 2010 target. With a little help from other members of the Clemson family, Postorino isn't the only one recruiting this prospect.

Los Osos High School (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.) finished its season Tuesday night in heart-breaking fashion on a buzzer beater, ending the playoff run in the third round.

With the season now over, shooting guard Kendall Williams is ready to get down to the business of deciding on his college destination. Clemson assistant coach Josh Postorino was in California again for the game.

Williams said Postorino kept the post-game visit short.

"He was there to show support and kind of relay the interest. We didn't really talk. He was just there to show their interest," Williams said. "It's always nice when he comes out. It was a good game to go to."

Postorino's recruitment has been aided by Paul and Bonnie Moskos, the parents of former Clemson pitcher Daniel Moskos and women's soccer player Erin Moskos.

Daniel was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates with the fourth overall pick in the first-round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft.

"One of my sisters and (Erin) played soccer when they were little and through middle school, high school," Williams said.

During his official visit to Clemson last weekend, Paul and Bonnie accompanied Williams and his parents to the Virginia game on Saturday night.

"I actually received death threats from the mom," Williams said light-heartedly. "They're putting in their two cents about Clemson."

Right now his decision is between Clemson and New Mexico, though other schools are still showing interest.

"Clemson and New Mexico are the two I'm really trying to evaluate. They're both great programs and it's a tough decision. That's why I'm honestly thinking about it so long," Williams said. "I think eventually the right decision will be made."

Florida, Illinois and Iowa are the schools that could be "players" in his decision. At this point, it's unlikely that he'll take another official visit.

"I might reserve one for Illinois just because they've been in the picture for a while. I've been to Florida. And the other, I probably won't make a trip to," Williams said.

As for the decision, it will be made within the next three weeks.

"It could be weeks, or the next week or two weeks," he said.
