Donovan Williams

The class of 2019 is loaded in the state of Texas, with great bloodlines and lots of potential, shooting guard Donovan Williams is on track to emerge as one of the best prospects in the state.

Basketball runs in Williams' family. His older sister Kelsey Bone was a national player of the year in high school and first round draft pick in the 2013 WNBA Draft. A 6-foot-4 shooting guard himself, Williams is a versatile player who began establishing himself as a player to watch over the summer with his travel team Texas PRO.

“I would describe my game as somebody who does a little bit of everything," Williams told Rivals.com. "I’m probably more of a wing, two and three type position player. But I can handle the ball and make plays for others.”

Williams first offer came from Sam Houston State and he's recently had Richmond, Houston and UT-San Antonio in to see him. Others involved include California, Tulsa, San Diego and Kansas State.

“I’m going to do everything that You want from a guy on your team," said Williams. "I’m going to rebound, I’m going to pass and I’m going to score. I’m a multi-faceted player who is definitely going to play defense.

“I think I’m a fit for an uptempo type school. Schools that like to get it going in transition and can work it from the inside out. Places that have a good offensive and defensive scheme. Schools like that.”

The upcoming season is going to be a big one for Williams. He's created some buzz and is now looking to capitalize and has the confidence that he can play at the highest of levels.

“I think I can play at the highest D1 level there is if I can get myself into a position where I can showcase all of my talents," said Williams. "I’m working on my ball handling, getting more athletic and working on my shots. If I get it all together this year there will be no question of what I can do and what level I can play at.”
