Greg Williams, the 6-foot-4, 205-pound combo guard from Lafayette (LA) Christian Academy, is closing in on a college decision following his most recent official visit to St. John’s for their Midnight Madness event.
Ranked the No. 26 shooting guard in the Class of 2018 by 247Sports.com, Williams also took officials to Tulane and Nevada.
“I’m pretty confident he’s going to sign during the early period,” Greg Williams Sr. said Tuesday by phone. “He likes the choices that he has. A lot of coaches are calling and asking [when he’s going to sign]. They’re hopeful that he doesn’t sign in the early period [so] that they can re-recruit him, but I’m pretty confident he’ll sign in the early period.”
For their 2018 class, St. John’s is focusing on Williams and Prolific Prep (CA) forward Jordan Brown — to go along with committed Montverde (FL) Academy forward Josh Roberts.
