Marvin Williams update

Marvin Williams isn't vocal. The Bremerton (Wash.) forward does his talking on the court, which is why he's been silent since returning from his official visit to Chapel Hill last week.

Williams, who has also taken trips to Arizona and Washington in the last couple of weeks, doesn't have a leader yet, according to Rotary Select AAU coach Adam Sedlik, and a decision probably won't come until next month.

"I talked to him yesterday and he wants to sit down with me, his high school coach, Casey Lindberg, and his parents," Sedlik said. "We're going to go over the positives and negatives of each school and get an idea of where each school stands."

It's clear that Williams' father prefers his son to head to North Carolina, where the elder Williams grew up and still has family. However, Marvin Jr. realizes that his father is pro-UNC and will likely make his own decision without being swayed by anyone.

"Marvin doesn't have anything bad to say about any of the schools after his visits," Sedlik added. "That's just the way he is. I think it's pretty much those three schools and it doesn't look like he'll go on his other two visits. When it comes down to it, it's going to be his decision."

However, Sedlik did mention that there is still a slight chance that Williams could visit Oregon and/or Kansas.

"When I spoke to him yesterday, he still didn't want to rule out the possibility of taking a visit to Oregon or Kansas," he added. "He is really good friends with (Oregon incoming freshman) Aaron Brooks and he's already been to Kansas on an unofficial, but he may want to meet with the new staff."

Sedlik did mention that while Williams didn't divulge much after his visit to North Carolina, he was impressed with the treatment he received.

"I think he really felt comfortable at North Carolina," he said. "With everybody he met, he didn't feel like just another recruit. They all made him feel like he was a priority to them."

Williams will take this weekend off and then will travel to the U.S. Olympic Festival next Thursday. The remainder of his summer will include the ABCD Camp, a local tournament (July 13-15), the Big Time (Las Vegas) and the Best of the Summer to conclude the AAU season.
