The courtship of 2013 prospects heads into the final year and Baltimore (Md.) Mount St. Joseph 2013 Shooting Guard Kameron Williams is still considering Marquette, Miami (FL), Ohio State, Richmond, Syracuse, Virginia Tech, and Xavier at this point in his recruitment.  We caught up with the talented wing yesterday to get the latest…

While still considering the seven schools listed above, the 6-2 guard currently has a top five of Marquette, Miami (FL), Ohio State, Syracuse, and Wake Forest and has already, or will set up visits to those schools before making his decision.

Marquette made Williams’ top five because of their work ethic, something Williams would like to incorporate in his own game.

“They’re a very blue collar team,” Williams said. “They love to work hard. They’re always going to work hard and that’s what I want.”

Williams has an official visit set to Miami (FL) in September. He’s looking forward to speaking with the coaching staff thoroughly next week.

“I have a real good relationship with the whole coaching staff,” he said. “They always talk to me about my strengths and weaknesses. Their program and their staff seem like good people you can trust.”

Williams also has an unofficial visit planned to Ohio State in late September.

“They love to win,” said Williams. “They want the best out of you.  Coach (Dave) Dickerson and I have a real good relationship. He’s a good guy.”

Despite not extending an offer to Williams at this point, Syracuse is up on the Maryland guard’s list. Williams would be intrigued by an offer from the Orange.

“They’ve called a couple times to say their interested, but nothing beyond that,” Williams said. “They’re one of the best programs in the Nation. They’re like the cream of the crop. They take the best players and make them even better for the next level.”

Wake Forest also made the cut for Williams. He appreciates their drive and willingness to help him off the court.

“The coaches are great,“ he said. “They keep telling me to work hard and do everything with integrity, because you never know what can happen.”

Williams plans to take those five visits before making a final decision, which he says should come before his senior season.

He played with the Baltimore Elite program during the grassroots travel season.
