One of the more unheralded seniors in the city of Chicago is Marshun Wiliams. Williams is a 6’5” forward at Lindblom High School. He has started to generate a wide array of interest from college coaches. 

Some of the schools that are currently recruiting Williams include Aurora University, Dominican College, Knox College, Queen University, Roosevelt University, and Wartburg College. As well Barry University, Purdue-Northwest, and Southern Illinois-Edwardsville have reached out to him recently. While he doesn’t have any visits planned, he did mention that he would like to visit Aurora, Barry, and Wartburg. “I’m looking for a school that has great academics and a major in engineering. Mostly a college that will feel like a home to me when I go visit,” Williams mentioned on what he is looking for in his future school. 

Williams is a forward with a strong frame and some bounce to his game. The senior can shoot the ball from the perimeter as well to scoring it strongly around the paint. He plays with a big motor and can be a very tough defender. However, there a couple aspects of his game he would like to work on, “I would like to improve my handling a little more and being able to set up my team up to control the game in our favor,” Williams said. For his game, he tries to model his game after Kevin Durant. “He’s an all-around player who can do everything and I try to learn and pay attention to the little things that he does in games.” 

So far on the season, Lindblom High School and Williams are off to a 4-6 record. While Williams himself is putting up 13 points, 5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game. When talking about the season Williams called their start to the season as just “alright.” Also adding in that “we have a little adjusting to do since we lost four important players last year. But we have more games so we have a chance to get back on the right path like we were last year.” 

Williams goals for his senior season include keeping Lindblom in Chicago’s Red South Division as well as getting more looks from college coaches. Lindblom and Williams will look to get back on track when they participate in the upcoming Kankakee Holiday Tournament.
