Class of 2013 prospect Nigel Williams-Goss was the point man in Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep's dismantling of Chicago Simeon High School at the Hoophall Classic. He is also ready to run the point at the next level.
A physical player at 6-foot-4 and 180 pounds, Williams-Goss has the versatility to play all three perimeter positions. Findlay Prep sees his value at the point, and that is the position Williams-Goss wants to play in college.
"I definitely want to play point guard in college," Williams-Goss told Rivals.com. "I want to step in right away and have the ball in my hands."
Plenty of schools would be happy to hand over the ball to him. Offers are in from Washington, Washington State, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, Harvard, Miami, Oklahoma and UNLV. Louisville and Georgetown haven't offered yet but are showing strong interest in Williams-Goss.
Wide open in his recruitment, Williams-Goss won't be making a decision any time soon. Once committed to UNLV before Lon Kruger left for Oklahoma, Williams-Goss plans to take his official visits in the fall of his senior year before settling on a school.
A savvy player with great court vision and a patented floater in the lane, Williams-Goss displayed his defensive prowess at the Hoophall. Trading off with Winston Shepard guarding 2013 elite forward Jabari Parker, Williams-Goss made the going very tough for Parker.
Finding a school that values defense is also high on his priority list.
"Style of play is important," he said. "I want to run, but I take a lot of pride in my defense. I want to play for a team that really sits down and defends. Being in a position to win a national championship is also very important."
With his strong all-around game, Williams-Goss, who is No. 40 in the 2013 Rivals150, will increase the chances of a national championship for whichever school he chooses.
