Williams chose the Blue Devils over Michigan and UCLA. He joins Jalen Johnson, Jeremy Roach, DJ Steward, Jaemyn Brakefield, and Henry Coleman to extend Duke’s lead over Kentucky for the #1 recruiting class for 2020. He is currently a roommate and teammate with Jalen Johnson at IMG Academy. He also played with Henry Coleman on Team Loaded in AAU.
Williams has ties to Duke as his sister, Elizabeth, was a star on the women’s basketball team from 2011-15.
He should see plenty of time at the center spot next season as Duke will lose Javin DeLaurier to graduation and Vernon Carey most likely to the NBA.
The Blue Devils still aren’t done recruiting for 2020 as they among the finalist for center Hunter Dickinson.
