2019 prospect is a rising star in his class

Western Kentucky becomes one of the first to offer The Colony, Tex., prospect Tre' Williams

The Colony, Tex., prospect Tre' Williams is a rising target in the 2019 class and Western Kentucky became of the first to extend a scholarship.

The 6-foot-4 shooting guard/small forward picked up the WKU offer in late January.

"When I received the offer I felt blessed and honored," Williams told WKU Insider.  "I was excited for the opportunity and glad that the coaching staff saw the potential and talent in me."

His budding relationship with Hilltoppers assistant Shammond Williams has left the talented sophomore impressed that the staff wants to see him succeed both on and off the court.

"He's a great guy and coach," he said.  "He's focused on more than just basketball and that's rare in college basketball."

The WKU staff does hope to host Williams for a visit soon.

"They said whenever me and my parents can find the time to go up there on a weekend or something," he said.

Williams also holds early offers from fellow Conference USA member Old Dominion, plus Georgia Tech.  A host of others have expressed an interest, including Creighton, Indiana, Miami, UCLA, and Wake Forest, along with in-state programs TCU, Texas, Texas Tech and UTSA.

The attention that he's garnering is creating a bit stress, but Williams welcomes the opportunity.

"It's stressful but exciting and worth it," he said.  "It just makes me grind harder to achieve my goals."
