UNC Hosts Elite Wing

Roy Williams and North Carolina hosted highly regarded junior wing Troy Williams for an unofficial visit on Saturday.

Williams, a standout at Hampton (Va.) Phoebus, said he made it to Chapel Hill a little after 9 a.m. and stayed on campus through the early afternoon.

"It was real fun," Williams said. "I got to take a tour of the campus and we watched the football game."

"It was good," he added. "It was real good actually. Coach (Steve) Robinson walked us around and he was with us most of the time. Before the football game started we got to meet Coach Roy (Williams). Talking to Coach Roy, he definitely has a lot of experience."

Williams said his relationship with Roy Williams is "just now starting."

"They haven't offered yet," the No. 2-rated small forward in the 2013 class said. "They are just showing interest."

"It's a very nice school," Williams added. "I could see them as being one of my favorite colleges. I learned a lot about their history and it was a real nice campus."

While in Chapel Hill, Williams also had the opportunity to play against current and former Tar Heels.

"I got to play against Tyler Hansbrough, Raymond Felton and Marvin [Williams]," he said.

"Playing against them it was like old school at the YMCA," Williams said. "There was a lot of talking and people talking junk. It was a learning experience. Most of the time I was either checking P.J. Hairston or Jackson [Simmons]."

Williams said he currently holds scholarship offers from Georgetown, Louisville, Virginia Tech, DePaul and Alabama. He also has interest from Carolina, Duke, Kentucky, Texas and Florida.

When asked about cutting down his list, Williams said he still has some visits to take.

"I don't really know yet," he said. "I still have some visits to go on. After October I'm going to start thinking about it more."

"Starting next month I'm going to Louisville and then while I'm up there I'm going to a camp and then I'm going to go over to Kentucky and see their campus. Then after that the next ones will be Georgetown and Virginia Tech."
