ESPN No. 6 ranked high school senior power forward Malik William had a whopping 16 blocked shots to lead The First Academy (Orlando) past Holy Trinity (Melbourne, FL) 81-52.

 

“I didn’t realize I had that many blocks until they had told me when I had came out of the game,” William told USA Today. “I thought I probably had about 8 or 9 blocks.”

 

The 16 rejections in Friday’s win set a TFA single-game school record

 

The 6-7 human eraser also added 14 rebounds, 7 assists, and 2 steals, to go along with 3 points.

 

“I take a lot of pride in playing defense,” William told the Orlando Sentinel. “That’s my first priority, playing defense, then offense.”

 

William averaged 14 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 blocks last season for The First Academy.

 

The Clemson commit is looking forward to bringing defensive toughness — and scoring — to the Tigers next year.

 

“They are getting an outstanding player who can control the game,” William told thestate.com of Clemson. “I can block shots and rebound, but I also can step out and hit the three-pointer. I like to bring the ball up the court, and I like to move and get the ball in my hands.”

 

Watch out Atlantic Coast Conference, a shot-blocking and rebounding machine is coming to wreck the conference next season!
