Considered the top 2009 prospect in Texas, Shawn Williams is leading a balanced Duncanville (Texas) High School attack which has his team undefeated and nationally ranked. As expected a host of schools are trying to make headway with the 6-foot-6, 200-pound small forward.
Arkansas, Baylor, Texas and Texas A&M have already offered the sophomore. Although North Carolina and Tennessee have shown limited interest to this point, they also join William's school list with Florida, Georgetown, Illinois, Kansas and Memphis.
Williams, who is averaging a team high 19 points to go along with seven rebounds, is far from trimming down his list or even settling on it.

"I'm wide open," Williams told Rivals.com. "I don't have any favorites right now. I just want to see how things develop."
There is still a bit of developing left for Williams. The sweet shooting wing man might still be growing.
"Hopefully I'll grow some more," he said. "I have a 6'9 grandfather, a 6'10 uncle and my mom is 6'1."
Although his recruiting process is still in the very early stages, Williams already has some criteria set for the type of program he would like to play in.
"I do want to play early. And I want to play for a good coach, someone I get along with but also someone who will push me and get the best out of me. An up and down style of play is also important. I really like how teams like Memphis and Tennessee play."
Planning to run with Texas Select in the 17-under circuit in the spring and summer, Williams gave this quick breakdown on his game.
"I can shoot it from anywhere on the court. But I definitely need to get stronger and improve my ball handling."
