A couple thoughts on Elliot Williams’ Nov. 2 commitment
Posted by Jason Smith, Commercial Appeak
For those of us that thought for a while the University of Memphis may be St. George’s senior guard Elliot Williams’ fourth choice among a group that also includes Duke, Tennessee and Virginia, I personally believe after talking to Williams on Wednesday the Tigers helped themselves immensely during last Friday’s Midnight Madness festivities at FedExForum.
Prior to last Friday, Williams, a 6-4 slasher rated the nation’s No. 3 senior shooting guard prospect by Rivals.com, seemed concerned about fitting in at Memphis, a concern apparently alleviated sometime during his official visit last weekend.
I’m not saying Memphis is the pick. I believe Williams when he says he hasn’t made a descision yet and that right now all four are even. However, I do believe the Tigers made it a much tougher decision for the hometown product. We’ll find out Nov. 2.
