2013’s Troy Williams will make his college decision known by Twitter today and by most accounts, it is down to a Kentucky vs North Carolina decision. I think this race was fairly close for quite a while, but as of now, it seems that Williams will select the more feminine blue of North Carolina. First, his uncle Boo, seemed to commit a slip of the tongue recently by saying that if his nephew grew a few more inches, he could “be a four at Carolina”. Secondly, I think the timing of the announcement favors UNC. Kentucky is heavily involved with a ton of talent in the 2013 class and taking Williams and holding a couple of spots for the Harrison twins locks up four roster spots. Players like Jabari Parker, Julius Randle, James Young and even possibly Andrew Wiggins are rated higher than Williams at this point.
I could be wrong though. It’s just speculation.
Regardless, best of luck to Williams. He seems like a great kid and this seems to have been a tough decision for him. But one thing is for certain. Expect the winning coach to be attacked for taking a possible “one and doner” and for getting more involved in the sleazy AAU environment. No wait, that is just if Calipari gets Williams. If Roy Williams gets him, expect to hear how Roy is a great guy, a great recruiter, and left Kansas in great shape when he left.
