Recruiting update: St. John's offers Brooklyn guard Mike Williams (2014)

USA TODAY Sports

Another name surfaces as a target for Steve Lavin's 2014 recruiting class.

Even as the dog days of summer quickly approach, Steve Lavin continues to work to build his program.

St. John's has extended a scholarship offer to Mike Williams, an incoming senior shooting guard out of Bishop Loughlin High School in Brooklyn. The news was reported on Saturday night by Zach Braziller of the New York Post.

Williams is a 6-foot-2 guard who is considered to be an excellent perimeter shooter and a solid ball handler. If he were to accept Lavin's offer to join the Red Storm, he would become eligible a year from this upcoming fall.

It isn't any secret as to how Lavin and his staff have come to know Williams. The guard is a teammate of fellow St. John's target Khadeen Carrington both at Bishop Loughlin and on the AAU circuit with the New York Lightning.

Throughout his three years at St. John's, Lavin has been known to target high school and AAU teammates in sets of two, likely to more strongly attract the better prospect. He followed a similar blueprint when recruiting Felix Balamou from Our Savior New American High School (alongside Chris Obekpa), Marc-Antoine Bourgault from Monroe College (Orlando Sanchez), Max Hooper from Brewster Academy (JaKarr Sampson), and former commit Dwight Meikle from Quality Education Academy (Sir`Dominic Pointer).

Will attracting Mike Williams enhance Carrington's desires to commit to St. John's? Maybe, but it is still very much yet to be seen.

Williams has also received offers from other strong Division I programs such as Rutgers, Dayton, Temple, Rhode Island, Iowa, and Drexel.
