The Donald Williams Sweepstakes is still ongoing.
The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Williams, a senior at Temple Hills (Md.) Progressive Christian Academy, said Tuesday he is still deciding between Marquette, St. John’s and Oklahoma State. He visited St. John’s recently and enjoyed the trip, and still hopes to see the other two.
“I haven’t seen Marquette yet,” he said. “I’m trying to get some paperwork mailed off today to the (NCAA) Clearinghouse and then I’m getting some stuff sent to my house. I should be going to Marquette and Oklahoma State but I just got to take care of this paperwork.
“I should be able to decide by the end of June.”
As for the St. John’s visit, Williams, who has been compared by his coaches to Ray Allen of the Celtics, previously said: “It’s a wonderful place, wonderful environment.”
