Loughlin Guard Mike Williams Adds Offers; Carrington Focusing on Four
Mike Williams, a 6-foot-2 guard from Brooklyn Bishop Loughlin, continues to add offers to his resume.
The 2014 sharpshooter now holds offers from Creighton, Rutgers, Fordham and Virginia, according to New York Lightning coach Shandue McNeil.
Williams, who went for 25 points, including 7-for-7 from the arc in a recent win over the Mac Irvin Fire in Hampton, Va., also has interest from UCLA, Kansas and Miami.
Williams and Loughlin teammate Khadeen Carrington played this past weekend at the Nike EYBL stop in Dallas, where the Lightning went 2-2.
The 6-3 Carrington is still focusing on SMU, UConn, St. John’s and Cincinnati, McNeil said.
