Troy Williams came away impressed with his weekend visit to Indiana and the school remains a viable option for him, his uncle told SNY.tv.
“Oh, he’s seriously considering Indiana,” legendary AAU coach Boo Williams said Sunday by phone after spending Friday with his nephew on the visit..
“I think they will use his athletic ability not only in transition but they work on his half-court offense. They’re going to use him in different situations offensively and defensively. They did a good job of breaking it down.”
The 6-foot-6 Oak Hill small forward attended Hoosier Hysteria along with committed players Stanford Robinson, Devin Davis, Luke Fischer and Collin Hartman and uncommitted big man Beejay Anya.
Williams took an unofficial to North Carolina last weekend and is also considering Alabama, Arkansas, Louisville and Ohio State.
Boo said his nephew can’t take any more visits until at least Nov. 17 because of Oak Hill’s schedule.
“He doesn’t have another day,” he said.
In the meantime, Indiana coach Tom Crean and his staff came away leaving an impression on Williams.
“They did a very good job,” Boo said.
