Michael Williams Nears Decision, Likes TCU

San Antonio shooting guard has narrowed his list to four choices. Williams would be a nice addition for Frogs, looking for depth at the point guard position

San Antonio point guard Michael Williams burst onto the AAU scene this summer with a game winning shot for the South Texas Irish against Derrick Rose sponsored Team Rose.

Williams lifted his team to the Sweet 16 of the Adidas 64 with a step back three to pull the upset against Team Rose.

"I was the leader of the team, and I love being that guy, the guy with the ball in his hands with 10 seconds left," Williams said. "If we lost, it was because I didn't do the things I needed to to help us win."

"Basketball is about winning. You are always having to be a leader and making sure everyone is doing things the right way," Williams said. "To win the most games you can, you have to make sure people are doing the right things, in the right mood, and getting ready to play."

For the coaches who knew Williams long before that shot, his success should not come as a surprise. Dedicated to leadership and team-first ideals, Williams is a true point guard.

"The main schools that I am interested in are TCU, Utah, Penn, and Tulane," Williams said. "I am very big on academics and getting it done in the classroom and on the court, so those are my [leaders]."

Williams, holding over 15 Division I offers, is widely considered the best prospect in the San Antonio area. At 6'2, 185 pounds, Williams has good size for a point guard and can play physical basketball.

Williams has already visited TCU and Tulane.

"The TCU campus seemed really beautiful, and I played with the team which seemed like a [bunch of] nice guys," said Williams. "A good friend of mine Chris Zurcher plays up there. I have been playing basketball with him for the past 5-6 years. It's always good to know someone there."

Zurcher, who will be a junior at TCU this season, hails from nearby Johnson High School in San Antonio.

"Going into the Big 12 is a big step, and I know they will compete and do well," Williams explained.

Williams explained that he knows exactly what he is looking for when he visits a school.

"Nice campus, family environment with the coaches and team, and somewhere where it can bring out the best for me and keep me pushing forward. Ill be looking for those things as well as for a chance to compete," Williams said.

Williams said that he hears frequently from new TCU head coach Trent Johnson and assistant coach Donny Guerinoni.

"They really made it clear how much they want me," Williams said. "We talk once every three days or so, and it helps when you really get to know the coaches."

Williams said he will visit TCU on September 22nd after visits to Tulane and possibly Penn, and he will visit Utah on September 29th.

"After Utah is when I will probably want to commit," Williams said.
