Final Piece?

West Virginia is set to host a top junior college guard this weekend in hopes of rounding out its official roster.

The West Virginia men's hoops team has endured quite the overhaul this offseason, and the ever-changing roster may soon tally another addition.

After plucking guards Tarik Phillip and Jaysean Paige out of the junior college ranks, the Mountaineers could be poised to add another in South Plains College (Texas) wingman Billydee Williams.

Williams, a 6-foot-6 guard, will officially visit West Virginia this weekend.

"Yes, I plan to visit WVU this weekend," Williams confirmed in a text message to BlueGoldNews.com. "I'm looking forward to visiting them."

Originally from Orlando, Fla., Williams had a successful first season at South Plains. He averaged 10 points and five rebounds while coming off the bench for the Texans. He did start one game, but was used mostly in the sixth man role.

Known predominately as a solid defender, Williams also boasts a reputation for scoring points in bunches. He poured in over 20 points in eight contests this past season.

For now, though, Williams is searching for a new home. The talented athlete originally committed to Towson in 2012 before making his way to both prep and community colleges.

Williams reports interest from a variety of other programs including Oklahoma State, Auburn, Oregon State, UTEP and Texas A&M.

BlueGoldNews.com will continue to update his recruitment and upcoming visit.
