Emmitt Williams, the five-star Class of 2018 power forward from Oak Park (FL) High School, has cut his list to three schools.
Williams is down to Oregon, LSU and Florida, according to recruiting reporter Russ Wood.
“I’m going to make my decision soon, man,” Williams told Wood. “Once God lets me know, I’ll let everybody else know.”
On Oct. 11, Williams was arrested and charged with felony sexual battery and false imprisonment of a female friend. He pleaded not guilty to the charges, and the charges were subsequently dropped.
According to 247Sports, Williams is ranked as the No. 21 overall player in the Class of 2018. Williams was set to take his second official visit to Florida Oct. 20, but didn’t take it in the wake of the arrest. Williams, who named his top seven in August, took his first official visit to LSU Oct. 12. He was also considering Duke, Kansas, Miami, Oregon, and USC.
