St. John's basketball recruiting: Jordan Williams Update

Williams is deciding between St. John's (who offered him a scholarship well before he blew up, and where his sister goes) and Maryland (who have been chasing him hard and offer more early playing time).

Torrington HS coach Tony Turina says, per Zagsblog:

"Both visits were great. He’s got a difficult choice. He came away impressed with both schools. I would say they’re both neck-and-neck. He’s narrowed his choices down to those two schools. Within the next week to 10 days, he should be making a commitment one way or the other."

"He’s going to be a four," Turina said. "He’s 6-10, he’s a power man. He finishes better than many big men. He’s got great great hands and he can run the floor well. Once he commits to the weight room in college, I think he can be a much better college player than he his in high school because he’s going to be pushed every day in practice and every game.

"Whenever he played against top schools and top players in Connecticut, he came away dominating the game. His upside is tremendous."
