Nigel Williams-Goss didn't miss a beat, didn't look out of place at all playing with the Double Pump Elite team last weekend at the Double Pump May Tournament even though he's a 2013 prospect.
Williams-Goss is a 6-foot-2 point guard who has already picked up a few offers and has the potential to be a big-time national recruit since things are already looking good for him on the recruiting circuit.
Washington, UNLV, Oregon State, Oregon and Hawaii have verbally offered Williams-Goss, who said he's hearing from Arizona, Connecticut, Kentucky, Mississippi State and a little bit from UCLA and USC. He said Washington and UNLV are two early favorites but it's really early so he said he's still wide open.
"UNLV and Washington are the top two right now," Williams-Goss said. "I don't know if the coaches will still be there, that's just for right now. Those are the schools I've had the most contact with."
Williams-Goss has taken unofficial visits to UNLV, Washington and Oregon State but there is still so much time left in his recruitment that anything can happen. More national programs are expected to get involved and a lot will go into the decision-making process including how each school uses their guards.
"My dad wants me to get it out of the way early just so I can play and not worry about that but to me it's all about when I'm comfortable and that's when I'll make my decision," Williams-Goss said.
"It's all about what's the best fit for me, if the coaching staff is right, if it fits my style of play, that's where I'm going to go to ultimately get to the NBA. It doesn't matter which conference or where the school is at, it's all about the best fit.
"(Getting to the NBA) definitely goes into my decision and where I'm going to go and if they're a guard-dominated school I'm going to look at that. If they let their guards play, if they're up and down so then you have to factor all that and figure out what's best for you."
There is no timetable for a decision, Williams-Goss said. It could happen sooner rather than later but for the Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep guard it's all going to come down to when he feels most comfortable picking a school and sticking with it. Everyone knows he has more than enough time.
"I just try to stay in the gym as much as possible and maximize my abilities and I'm trying to take it as far as it can take me," Williams-Goss said. "I'm just going to talk to my family whenever I feel like I'm ready. I don't care if it's early, I don't care if it's late."
