Saddi Washington making inroads with 2018 in-state talent Trevion Williams

Michigan assistant coach Saddi Washington has been making the rounds in Detroit this week 2018 four-star center Trevion Williams.

During his days at Oakland University, Michigan assistant coach Saddi Washington could be frequently seen recruiting the Detroit area.

In his new home in Ann Arbor, things haven't changed as he continues to hit the local recruiting trail hard in Detroit. Washington made the rounds this week to see various in-state talents such as 2018 four-star center Trevion Williams (Henry Ford High School).

Washington stopped by Williams' school on Tuesday to see him workout. Considering he is an in-state talent, Williams doesn't know much about the Wolverines but plans to change that soon. He also appreciates Washington's laidback style of communication.

"I've always liked Coach [Beilein] and the way he coaches but I never knew that much about Michigan," Williams said. "I want to get up for a visit very soon. It was good to see coach Washington the other day. He is very easy to communicate with."

Unfortunately for Williams, he couldn't give 100 percent during the workout as he is recovering from an injury.

"I didn't do much because of course I just came off an injury," Williams said of his workout. "[Washington] was telling me that it's time to get in shape and that he is looking forward to watching me in Virginia this weekend."

While Williams currently does not have an offer from U-M, he hopes that changes. Of course, U-M head coach John Beilein does not hand out offers until the recruit takes a visit, official or unofficial, to Ann Arbor. While he hasn't heard anything that tips their hand, Williams is confident that an offer will come once he visits.

"No one has mentioned [getting an offer Michigan] but maybe if I visit, I believe I will receive an offer," Williams said. "Until then I'm just going to keep working on my game."

His game is certainly coveted, the Scout Top 100 player is also the top player in the Midwest for his position. With seven offers already, Williams says that Xavier, Michigan, Michigan State and Purdue have been sticking out the most to him. While he is working towards receiving an offer from the Wolverines, one that says would make him think about things more closely, he sees himself as a good fit for his system.

"I describe my game as inside out," Williams said. "I think that playing through Beilien's system will allow the shooters to get open while I'm in the post rebounding. Also, I know Coach B likes big men who are versatile, which means they can step out and shoot it."
