Five-star prospect Latavious Williams is feeling good about his new location at Humble (Texas) Christian Life Center, and he still has his eyes set on three schools.
It was Baylor, Florida State and Memphis when Williams, a Mississippi native, arrived in Texas, and it is still a three horse race for the 6-foot-7, 195-pound forward.
"I'm still looking at FSU, Baylor and Memphis," said Williams. "Those are the schools that have been in here this fall. Texas A&M came today, and I believe they are going to start recruiting me. But it is probably going to be about those three schools."
A talented and athletic forward who has drawn comparisons to Tyrus Thomas, Williams is excited about his new environment and the development of his game.
"I really like it here," he said. "I like my teammates, and I feel I'm getting better. I'm taking people off the dribble and hitting my pull up jumper. My coach really has me working on changing directions with the ball."
Williams also is optimistic about his academic progress and is confident he will qualify and be able to sign in the spring.
Whatever school is fortunate enough to land Williams, who is the No. 15 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, won't have him long if things progress as Williams is hoping.
"I'll be looking at how much I'll play early on and how much I can impact the team," said Williams about his college choice. "I also want to play a fast paced game without a lot of sets. My goal is to be one and done."
Latavious Williams scouting report:
An exceptional athlete with the capacity of playing with an impressive energy level, Williams has drawn comparisons to Tyrus Thomas of the Chicago Bulls. Assaulting the rim is his forte, but Williams also has touch on his jumper out to 17-feet and can make plays with the basketball. Defensively, he is an imposing presence with his shot blocking ability.
