Arizona Gets No. 16 Jr Brandon Williams

ESPN No. 16 ranked high school junior Brandon Williams has committed to Arizona.

 

The 6-1 point guard out of Crespi Carmelite High School (Encino, CA) missed the entire season with a knee injury.

 

He plays his AAU ball with Nike EYBL power Cal Supreme.

 

“I’m going to Arizona, they’ve been there [recruiting me] from the beginning,” Williams told Scout. “The biggest reason was [head coach] Sean Miller; he was a big part of that recruitment. I love the coaching staff, especially with the addition of [assistant Lorenzo] Romar. That only helped me because he’s had a lot of great guards including Markelle [Fultz] and Isaiah Thomas.

 

Williams said that the Wildcats’ style of play is perfect for him.

 

“They are starting to do a lot more ball screens, which fits my game,” Williams told ESPN. “They need me to be the point guard. They haven’t had that guard in a while. They need me to just do what I do now: create for myself as well as for my teammates.”

 

His Crespi Carmelite high school coach Russell White said that Williams is a special talent.

 

“He’s got a tremendous feel for the game,” White told Arizona Desert Swarm. “His ability to see the floor, his ability to put the ball in the hoop are elite for his level. He has a knack for making plays at the right time.”

 

At Arizona, Williams will join fellow 2018 recruit No. 19 Shareef O’Neal, the son of NBA great Shaquille O’Neal.

 

The Wildcats beat out the likes of Kansas, UCLA, Gonzaga, UConn, and Cal to land Williams.
