If the Vandal coaching staff is looking for speed, Kennedy-King's Dwayne Williams is a pretty good start. Division I NJCAA power Kennedy-King is a team with plenty of talent, including All-American candidate Cameron Echols (a friend of Dwayne's since high school) who is getting looks by some of the major teams in the nation, including Oklahoma. Dwayne, who earned Second Team Region IV honors, provides a good balance for Kennedy King's big team. He's described as a "sharp-shooter" from the field, and has had his share of huge games this season, including a 25-point performance in which he hit 7 of 10 from behind the 3-point arc. Dwayne's also proven to be a durable athlete with fantastic endurance, having made 36-minute outings on the court a regular occurrence.

Among the things that Idaho is looking to improve significantly this recruiting season is its ability to hit jump shots consistently, and (preferably) lots of them. Dwayne's combination of quickness and accuracy embodies the type of Shooting Guard that Coach Perry is looking to bring to the University of Idaho.
