Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: City of Palms Classic (Fort Myers, Fla.)

Williams get much of his work done 10 feet and in. He rebounds and finishes at the rim with the best in the country. He can face the basket, but likes to attack the rim off the bounce. His athleticism and ability to finish puts him the ELITE category currently. He finished with 14 points and six rebounds in a win over Mariner HS. He then followed that up with an impactful 19 points in a win over Norcross on the next day.

Williams plays both forward positions and will play with activity. He rebounded and brought energy in the paint. He also hit the spot up jumper with a smooth release. His athleticism and skill have him in the conversation of one of the best at his position nationally.

Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: Nike EYBL Session IV (Suwanee, Ga.)

Williams is playing real minutes with another summer of eligibility remaining. He’s averaging 10.4 points, 6.6 rebounds per in 16 EYBL games so far. He’s got a build / style that reminds me of Jarred Vanderbilt. Williams made a MEAN catch / open and rip to attack the rim from 12 feet. He is a grinder shooting 60 percent from the field. That said, he’s at 63 percent from the free throw line and can improve there.
