High majors tracking Williams

Troy Williams was down to two schools in the spring, but he decided he wasn't ready to decide and re-opened his recruitment.

Now, the 4-star wing has opened things up and is considering South Carolina, Alabama, Indiana, Kansas, Louisville, Georgetown and Arkansas to go along with Kentucky and North Carolina.

"When I thought I was going to decide, I wasn't too comfortable," Williams said. "My uncle (Boo Williams) said that if I wanted to open my recruitment back up, that I could, but not a lot. So, we decided to open it up to littler schools; schools that he's been in touch with."

Williams plays with a wide-open style with a motor that never stops running. It's a style that coaches can appreciate since the Virginia native doesn't take any plays off. So, does Williams notice the coaches watching him only several feet away from the court?

"I don't really recognize the coaches," he said. "I just focus on the court, and I don't really see nothing else."

Williams doesn't really have a plan on how he wants to go about making his decision this go-round. He said he wants to take a look at some of the schools before he headed to Florida this week for the final evaluation period, and after he returned, he planned on taking a deeper look at the schools.

"I don't really know if I'm going to narrow it down or just go ahead and commit," Williams said.

There have been rumors that Williams could be a package deal with his friend and AAU teammate Anthony Barber.

Barber is down to four schools (Louisville, Kansas, Alabama and N.C. State), all of which are being considered by Williams except for N.C. State.

Kansas has recently jumped in on the Williams recruitment, maybe a ploy to land the pair. And though Williams doesn't have any visit dates set up, there is one school that may have a leg up to land the duo.

"I'm planning on going to visit Alabama next month," Williams said.

Williams also said he's working on setting up a visit to South Carolina that was pushed back from last month.

Williams and South Carolina coach Frank Martin became familiar with one another when they both met at the trials for the USA Team. Martin was able to get involved with Williams when his recruitment was opened back up and went from two to five.
