Williams lands first offer

Starkville (Miss.) High School forward Latavious Williams steadily showed off his game this spring with the Birmingham Raptors and he picked up a scholarship offer along the way.
The 6-foot-7 forward showed off his versatility and upside inside the post. Each tournament, he improved a little bit more, he said.
"I think I did pretty good," Williams said. "Once I figured out the team, I played better as the month went along. I played good in the post and good as a shooter. Now I need to see what coaches think."

The Xavier coaches think highly of him. Williams, the No. 89 ranked player in the nation, says the Cincinnati school offered a scholarship recently.
"They are trying to get me to sign with them and set up a visit. I think I'll be going up there sometime next month," Williams said.
Alabama and Mississippi State have both been in to see him in April at his high school. Williams said, while Indiana, Virginia Tech, Ole Miss and Clemson remain in contact. Williams said he intends to take his time and see what kind of options he has come July.
"People are looking at me and I'm looking at them. Nothing is happening too fast," Williams said. "I got to see what's best for my family. That's a big thing."
Williams and his Birmingham Raptors are one of the many teams playing at the Wallace Prather Invitational this weekend at Georgia Tech.
