As one of the elite talents in the class of 2005, Terrence Williams has attracted plenty of attention and listed Kansas, Louisville, Arizona, Georgia Tech, Indiana and Washington as his current favorites. The only campus he has seen so far is Washington’s (unofficially) but that should change soon.
“I’m for sure visiting Louisville on the 11th of June. The first time I was supposed to visit it was never really set,” Williams told Phog.net. “I’m trying to go to Kansas on the fifth for an official visit. It isn’t set yet, but hopefully I’ll get to make that visit.”
For those that haven’t seen Williams play yet, the best way to describe his game is confident. Forget his incredible athleticism, forget his versatility and his college body, it is the confidence that he plays with that really sets him apart. He can shoot with range, but is at his best when he uses his explosiveness to attack the rim.
Like any young player, the key to maximizing his potential will be achieving consistency and learning how to completely control the game. This summer he’ll continue to work on that as he travels with Rotary Select and makes stops at Adidas Superstar camp and maybe the NBAPA camp.
So what exactly is it about Kansas that puts them among Williams’ top schools?
“I like that you get a chance to play. Coach Self doesn’t hate on you if you are a freshman and good, he’ll let you play,” said Williams. “I already know Micah Downs, I already know Chester and I already know Mario so that helps. I also hear they’ve got a great campus and it is a basketball environment, which makes it good in my mind.”
Before he decides, Williams would like to take at least three official visits but he won’t rule out deciding after one or two if somebody blows him away. Regardless of when he makes his decision, Williams is gunning to be one of the top players in the country and he does keep tabs on himself and others in his class via the internet from time to time.“I don’t really pay too much attention to the internet. If somebody writes a story about me I want to go online and see how they wrote it,” said Williams. “I also like to look at the rankings sometimes and see who is rated ahead of me so I can see who I’d like to play.”
