Troy Williams enjoyed his recent visit to Alabama and his future plans remain in flux until he settles in at Oak Hill Academy beginning this weekend.
“The Alabama visit was good,” his uncle, Boo Williams, told SNY.tv Monday.
“They did a good job showing him the campus and showing him all the things he needed to see.”
The 6-foot-6 Williams is also considering Louisville, Kansas, Indiana, Ohio State, Memphis, Arkansas and South Carolina, but Boo said no visits will be set until he settles in at Oak Hill and learns his schedule.
“We’re going to Oak Hill Saturday,’ Boo said. “Our problem is before we make another visit, we’re going to have to see what the schedule is.”
As reported here Sunday, Williams’s AAU teammate, Anthony “Cat” Barber, will visit Alabama officially Sept. 18-21. Barber will also visit N.C. State, Louisville and Kansas, but no Kansas official has been set.
Williams and Barber have talked about potentially playing together at Alabama or Louisville.
