    Emmitt Williams, the high-flying, five-star forward from Oak Ridge (FL), named a top seven schools on Tuesday.

    The 6-foot-7, 210-pound Williams lists Oregon, USC, Florida, Miami, Kansas, LSU and Duke.

    Last month at the Peach Jam, Williams said speaking to Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski was like “talking to God.”

    “Getting a phone call from him, it was like talking to God,” he said “I never thought I would be talking to the best coach in the world from his cell phone so getting a call from him is a blessing.”
