Duke strengthens its position with Williams

Elliot williams5861
Five-star prospect Elliot Williams gained a strong understanding of the Duke coaching staff on his unofficial visit. On his official visit this past weekend, Williams found a comfort level with Duke players.
"The visit went great," said Williams, a 6-foot-4, 175-pound combo guard from Memphis (Tenn.) St. George's School. "I was able to spend a lot of time with the players, especially the freshmen on the team. I played some pick up ball with them and was able to see how I fit in. I did well playing with them and fit in really well.
"I've always felt strong about Duke, but going on this visit gave me a better understanding of the players. On my unofficial visit, I spent a lot of time with the coaches and people in the administration, but didn't get to spend time with the players. On this trip I had a chance to hag out with the players. I felt comfortable with them, and that's big.
"I got a great feel for Duke, and now I need to get a feel for the other three schools."
Williams' next stop is Virginia on September 21. Then he visits Tennessee the first weekend of October and Memphis the following weekend.
Williams is the No. 16 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
Elliot Williams scouting report:
An electric athlete, Williams is a big time slashing scorer who can also wreak havoc on the defensive end with his length, quickness and superb anticipation. A potential big time point guard, Williams sees the floor and can break his man down on the dribble. He loves to take the ball right and then spin back to his dominant left hand against the second defender. His outside shot is in the process of improving.
