After finishing his third and final official visit on Thursday, it looked like Terrence Williams was going to wait several weeks before making a decision about his future. The 6-foot-7, 207-pound small forward/shooting guard from Rainier Beach High School in Seattle, Wash, indicated that he wanted to spend a great deal of time thinking about each of the three schools before giving a commitment. After thinking it over this past weekend, Williams has made his decision.
“I have given a commitment to Louisville,” Williams told RivalsHoops.com. “I really made the decision last (Saturday) night, but I didn’t tell anybody until today. It was a tough decision for me because my visit to Kansas earlier in the week left a big impression on me, but I just feel that Louisville is the best situation for me.
“Coach Rick Pitino is a great coach and I feel that we have a great relationship,” he added. “We have a great feel for each other and that played a big part in my decision. I also know that Louisville has a great class coming in next year. I feel that we have a chance to be ranked No.1 in the preseason polls when I arrive as a freshman.”
Along with Williams, Clarence Holloway, Amir Johnson, Andre McGee, Lamar Roberson and David Padgett (transfer) have also given commitments to the Cardinal. There is no doubt that Louisville is going to have one of the top recruiting classes, if not the top recruiting class, in 2005.
Rivals.com ranks Williams as the No. 54 player in the class of 2005 and the 15 best small forward.
