Two weeks ago it was announced Wake Forest had extended an offer to 2019 6’7 wing Brice Williams of(Hopewell HS) NC. Williams is a prospect whose stock has been on the rise over the last year, his combination of size and scoring ability are ideal for the next level.
Winston- Salem, North Carolina- At 6’7 Williams can play the two or the three; Williams can seriously fill it up, he’s got a nice fluid jumper, Williams gets nice lift on his shot and he strokes the leather with confidence. Williams shoots over smaller guards effortlessly, he handles it well and Williams is good creating clean looks off the dribble. Williams handle causes problems for bigger forwards, he utilizes his natural athletic ability to blow by slower defenders to the cup, Williams has somewhat of a stocky build he absorbs contact at the point of attack. Williams mid range game will suit him well in the collegiate ranks, he can abuse smaller wings with his back to the basket game.
Williams is a prospect who still has his best hoops in front of him, he’s only scratching the surface on his games full potential. The upside Williams posses is a big reason why Wake Forest and several other Acc schools are vying for his services, while Williams is appreciative of the recent recruitment activity he remains confident and hungry.
“I’m excited and very thankful to be recruited by a few schools in the ACC. It boosts my confidence, as it’s another level of skill in the ACC. I am continuing to build with the staff everyday.” Williams told Phenom Hoops.
Wake Forest is still building towards another tournament run and with the potential of losing star freshman Jaylen Hoard after one season, there could be open minutes on the perimeter. Williams can provide instant offense and versatility on the defensive side. Williams is expecting to continue making strides with a big senior year, his focus is locked on taking Hopewell (19-9,9-5), to the next level. The Titans will be looking to avenge last years early exit in the first round of the playoffs.
“My senior expectations, make my teammates better and teach them how to play basketball, win conference and put a banner up then win a state championship. Individual accolades come.” Williams said.
