The Chesterfield native has seen his stock skyrocket through his junior season and into his final year of AAU ball, displaying a lethal stroke from deep that has him currently rated No.83 by ESPN in the 2015 class.
Williams was spotted on campus this week with Coach Smart and assistant, Mike Morrell and is thought to have VCU high on his list.
The 6’3 shooting guard averaged 10.1 points per game in EYBL action this summer with Boo Williams and is just appearing on the radar of the likes of UNC, Georgetown and Co.
VCU has been on Williams since his freshman season with the Central Region Skyhawks and have developed quite the relationship with the Boo Williams scorer.
ESPN.com describes Williams as, “One of the elite shooters in the class especially when it comes to catch and shoot jumpers, Williams has a sweet stroke. Very active without the ball as he knows where he is headed on the floor whether it is to run away from his defender or to utilize and read screens to free himself for a shot.” (read more here: Kenny Williams, ESPN).
Our source that has had ample opportunities to watch Williams however has described him as “much more than a shooter”, telling VCURamNation.com, “the man can really play.” Ram fans may have a chance soon enough to see him do so at hometown VCU.
A commitment from Williams would give VCU their second local top-100 product since Midlothian’s (/Benedictine) Jordan Burgess. He would be the highest rated player to dawn the black and gold since 1990 McDonald’s All-American, VCU legend, Kendrick Warren.
