"I visited during the first week of September," said Williams. "I liked (the school); I felt like it fit me. It's not too big. I liked the teammates. The coaches are nice."
Williams had also fielded interest from Central Connecticut and Quinnipiac. A former standout at Our Savior (N.Y.) New American and St. Thomas (Conn.) More, Williams averaged 12.3 points and 3.8 assists as a freshman at Monroe.
"He brings speed," said Monroe coach Jeff Brustad. "I've called him Tyverson. He's probably the quickest guy in the program. He'll play some off the ball, play the point. We're a team with a lot of length, but he adds that other dimension (with his speed)."
