Marcus Williams, a 6-1, 190 pound point guard from Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., told us he isn't ready to make a decision. "I am down to two schools," Williams told us. "Georgia Tech and Connecticut. But I haven't made up my mind and I don't have any visits planned yet. I have to talk that over with my parents."
Williams does not have a test score back. "I took it last October but it was lost in the mail when that anthrax scare happened," Williams said. "So I can't take any official visits yet."
Williams can take some unofficial visits. And he has thought about taking a trip to Connecticut soon. "I don't know what is going to happen right now," Williams said. "I do want to make a decision by the end of the summer."
Williams heads to Oak Hill Academy on September 2nd. So he may try to make a decision before he lands on the campus of Oak Hill.
UCLA, previously mentioned, is not among his top two, according to Williams. A native of Los Angeles who attended Crenshaw H.S. the past three years, Williams has had a chance to see the UCLA campus many times. Maryland, North Carolina and N.C. State round out his list of six schools. Of those three, only N.C. State has offered. But apparently, Williams will decide between Connecticut and Georgia Tech. "That's what it looks like right now," Williams said.
A savvy floor leader who finds open teammates, Williams can also be a deadly three point marksman from the perimeter. What he lacks in quickness and athleticism, he makes up for with abundant qualities of smarts and awareness.
