2021 Julian Williams: Williams is an unsigned senior that should be more of a priority for schools. It is pretty simple and the proof is there in the resume… he brings an incredibly physical presence down low and extremely productive on the court, especially around the basket. 2024 Austin Swartz: Swartz is going to be a name many get familiar with at Cannon.  Really good size already, plays...
