When Phenom Hoops watched Mark Williams first at the Virginia Top 80 years ago, he was just a young rising star.  The talent has always been there and now he is being considered one of the top centers in the country.

Being a big-time prospect in the state of Virginia, Williams announced on Thursday that he would be heading to IMG Academy, one of the top programs in the country.

Now, Williams will be showing his talent on one of the biggest stages with a program that has proven to produce some of the top talents in the country.

“They’ve wanted me for a while,” Williams told Phenom Hoops.  “I visited last year but I felt now was the best time to go in order to develop my game and my body.

I’m just excited to be around people who have similar aspirations and have a will to win.”

The coaches at IMG will provide a platform for Williams to go and develop as a player, proving that he is one of the best centers in the country.

“They know that I’m able to do multiple things on the court and they needed a big as well, so both of those were also factors.”
