Williams is a 6-foot-8, 220-pound four man out of Middle Village, New York who plays his travel ball for PSA Cardinals. The junior holds offers from Creighton, Illinois, LSU, Seton Hall, Oklahoma State, TCU, USC, and others, and now adds Pitt to that list.
According to 247 Sports’ Rankings, Williams is a three-star prospect ranked among the top 150 in the nation at No. 146. He has excellent footwork and touch around the rim, and can extend the floor all the way out to the three-point line with a smooth jumper.
Days after arranging a visit with 2023 power forward Sultan Adewale, the Panthers are now targeting another power forward in the same junior class.
Current four man Mo Gueye is in his last year of eligibility for the Panthers. As for the 2023 class, the program already has one commitment in Marlon Barnes out of Cleveland.
