After initially saying he would announce Tuesday for either Kentucky or North Carolina, Troy Williams has postponed his decision.
“Postponed the decision for a while, gonna set up a new date later on this week,” he wrote on Twitter. “Didn’t feel right waking up this morning.”
Boo Williams, Troy’s uncle, told SNY.tv: “We’ll regroup and see where he’s going from here. He’s a kid, it’s hard to say. I don’t know if he’s gonna move it a week or a month or move it to July.”
Earlier, the 6-foot-7 wing from Phoebus (Va.) High told the Louisville Courier-Journal: “They’re both good schools. They’re like the top two programs out there right now, so it’s going to be a hard decision. But it will come down to which coach I like the best.”
Williams said Kentucky coach John Calipari told him he could be similar to former St. Patrick star Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
“Kentucky plays a fast pace and coach (Calipari) is a good friend of my uncle’s,” Williams said.
As for Carolina, “some of the players came from my uncle’s team. They get up and down, too, and have a lot of dunks.”
Williams is the No. 4 small forward in the Class of 2013, per Rivals.
