Donald Williams, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound senior guard at Temple Hills (Md.) Progressive Christian Academy who was being courted by St. John’s and Marquette, is now no longer involved with either school, according to his AAU coach, Tony Tate.
“He didn’t sign with St. John’s,” Tate said. “They really wanted him. Marquette never followed through on the visit. University of Houston and Marshall are still interested in him.”
Marquette recently got a commitment from 2009 JUCO guard guard Dwight Buycks, effectively ending the Williams pursuit, and just signed 7-footer Liam McMorrow, finishing up their recruiting class for this year.
Meanwhile, my man Mike Anthony of the Hartford Courant reports that UConn forward Stanley Robinson will leave school for a JUCO near his home in Birmingham, Ala., but could return to the the Huskies in the future. Also, Curtis Kelly appears headed to Kansas State.
