-Rodney Williams Jr. has performed well at camps and AAU tournaments throughout the United States and has continued to solidify his standing as one of the top players in the country. I think Royce White is a more complete player at this juncture, but Williams’ ceiling is higher.
An obvious target of the Gophers, Williams has listed Minnesota among the schools he’s considering. And even though he’s received offers from schools around the country, I’ve been told by sources close to Williams’ recruiting process that his father would like his son to stay close to home, a sentiment reiterated by another source last week.
That doesn’t mean he’ll choose the Gophers. He has offers from Iowa, Bradley, Iowa State and Wisconsin, too.
But my sources suggest that his father doesn’t want him to play anywhere that forces him to drive a long distance to see him play. My sources also said that Williams did well academically last semester and they’re confident that he’ll do what he takes to qualify to play in 2009-10.
