Williams picks WVU
West Virginia had one spot to fill in the current recruiting cycle and during a weekend official visit to Morgantown Levelland (Tx.) South Plains C.C. forward BillyDee Williams committed to the Mountaineers according to his assistant coach.
Williams, 6-foot-6, 200-pounds, averaged 10.4 points and 5.6 rebounds showing great range for South Plains connecting on almost 40-percent of his three point attempts while also recorded 27 steals on the season.
Those numbers are especially impressive considering that Williams came off the bench for South Plains in all but one game.
The commmitment was announced by his assistant coach Hank Plona.
"Congrats to Billydee Williams on his commitment to West Virginia," he said.
The athletic swingman is originally from Orlando before heading to junior college in Iowa and then moving to Texas.
Given his size, he is an active rebounder and has the ability to get to the rim. A sophomore, Williams would have two years of eligibility remaining and drew interest from Texas A&M, UTEP, Penn State, Wyoming, Murray State and Oklahoma State among others.
Williams becomes the fifth member of the 2014 recruiting class joining fellow junior college products Independence C.C. (Kan.) guard Tarik Phillip and Moberly Area C.C. (Mo.) guard Jaysean Paige, along with prep guards Maywood (Il.) Proviso East's Jevon Carter and Baltimore native Daxter Miles.
WVSports.com has been able to confirm Williams commitment by speaking with sources but will get in touch with the junior college prospect tomorrow after his visit concludes.
He did however post this message on social media.
"I have officially committed to West Virginia University! This is only the beginning #StayTuned It only gets better from here #ThankGod"
