Thursday night, Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep will make their ninth nationally televised appearance in under two years. Wednesday, star sophomore Nigel Williams-Goss decided that he would play the game as a committed prospect when he offered up a verbal commitment to Lon Kruger and UNLV.
A native of Portland, Williams-Goss is a 6-foot-3 combo guard and one of just a handful of 2013 players who already rates as a four-star prospect.
"Nigel's an elite talent with a rare work ethic," said Findlay associate head coach Todd Simon. "He felt very comfortable with coach Kruger."
One of the most fundamentally sound players in the country, regardless of class, Williams-Goss is clearly a good pickup for the Rebels.
He can score from outside, has an outstanding feel for the game and can comfortably play the one or the two in just about any style of offense.
"He's excited about their style of play and wanted to be a part of the future at UNLV," said Simon. "Nigel's got a bright future ahead."
So far this season, Williams-Goss is averaging 15.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists while shooting over 65% from the field for 14-1 Findlay Prep.
