    Class of 2023 four-star power forward Brandon Williams will announce his final college decision on Sept. 19, a source confirmed to ZAGSBLOG.com. His announcement will take place at his high school, Christ the King (NY), at 2:30 p.m.

    Williams, the 6-foot-8, 205-pound forward of the PSA Cardinals AAU program, will be deciding between UCLA and St. John’s.

    Williams most recently took an official visit to UCLA Aug. 16-18 after unofficially visiting campus in December. He would be the Bruins’ first commit in the Class of 2023.

    “UCLA was a great experience, the coaches are really good people and have a good relationship with my high school coach,” Williams told ZAGSBLOG. “The people are cool, the environment is great, nice weather, it’s California. It’s just a great place and they have a winning and very big program.

    He has also taken multiple visits to St. John’s, including an official one in June.

    “What I like about St.John’s is that when I went to St. John’s of course it would feel like I’m home just because I’m in New York,” Williams said. “But meeting new people and being around them is really starting a new home and environment for myself, so right away I just felt that click with the coaches and I felt like they have my best interest and want me to be successful.”

    Four-star forward Brandon Gardner would be Williams’ teammate if he were to play for his hometown school.

    Williams is ranked the No. 74 player nationally by 247Sports and the No. 1 player in the state of New York.
