Williams active on visit trail

Like David Padgett last spring and summer, Marvin Williams is active on the old official visit trail. He's been to one Pac-10 school, will visit another this weekend and then he's heading east.

There aren't many guys who have three official visits booked already. Few, but not many. Count forward Marvin Williams in a select group of prospects with three visits on tap before the summer kicks into gear.

Last weekend, Williams dropped by Tucson to say hello and spend some time with Lute Olson. "It was nice. I'm just looking for a place that will fit me best that I can live for the next four years of my life."

One would expect the topic of hoops to come up at length on an official visit to Arizona, but that wasn't the case with Williams. "To be honest, we didn't talk much basketball. I didn't want to talk about it so I didn't bring it up. I just wanted to see the town. I didn't want to talk hoops."

To each his own, and certainly schools are willing to talk about whatever Marvin wants to chat about. Washington and Lorenzo Romar host him this coming weekend on his visit and then he'll be headed to North Carolina on June 13 for an official stop in Tar Heel Land.

"Those three schools are my only visits right now. I don't know if I'll take any in the fall or not." When a prospect visits Arizona, North Carolina and hometown Washington in the same month, we'd be willing to guess he'd commit somewhere sooner than later.

If he does wait, Oregon and Kansas are in pursuit but again, they don't appear to be in the same position as the three schools that are getting June visits.
