Name: C.J. Williams
Hometown: Fayetteville, North Carolina
High School: Jack Britt High School
Position: Shooting Guard/Small Forward
Vitals: 6'5/200/25.2 PPG
NOTES: C.J. Williams has been one of the most productive players in the region this season, as he is averaging 25.2 points and 9.1 boards for 15-4 Jack Britt.
However, he made his mark this summer on the AAU circuit for the Carolina Raptors and after standing out at several Elite Camps. As a sophomore, Williams averaged nearly 13 points per game while sharing time with other D-1 recruits.
"C.J. played sparingly for us as a freshman, but as a sophomore he started every game he was able to put on a uniform," said Jack Britt head coach Ike Walker. "Last year he was one of two underclassmen in our starting lineup. We had a 6'9 kid who ended up going to East Carolina, and we had a 6'3 small forward who went to Pfeiffer. C.J. averaged about 12 points a game last year, and he wasn't our primary option."
Recently Williams had a 24-point, 17-rebound outing and earlier this month he tallied 32 points and 19 rebounds against Fayetteville (NC) Douglas Byrd. Tonight Britt faces conference rival and leader Westover. Britt is currently 7-2 in the Mid Southeastern Conference while Westover is 8-1 and 17-2 overall. Tonight's game is at Jack Britt High School.
We'll have more junior highlights of Williams in action early next month so stay tuned!
COACH QUOTE: "This year his skill level allows him to play in a lot of places for us. He's going to be a leader for us on and off the court. His academics are sound. He's not walking around bragging about the opportunities he has. He's going to have to do a little of everything for us." -- Jack Britt Head Coach Ike Walker
