If the Arizona Wildcats do lose Brandon Williams to another school, it won’t be without a fight.
The four-star point guard took an unofficial visit to Arizona State on Saturday but his step-father, Chris Wright, told Doug Haller of AZCentral that UA coach Sean Miller planned to visit Williams on Monday night to “show him a couple ideas.” (Haller’s story published Monday, so it is not clear if the visit happened or not.)
Wright also said that Miller has assured that “everything will turn out OK” despite the adversity surrounding the UA program.
(Williams decommitted from Arizona on March 2 after ESPN released its Sean Miller-Deandre Ayton wiretap report.)
Miller also visited Williams on March 21, per 247Sports.
Landing Williams is significant for the Wildcats’ future, so it is no surprise to see Miller in hot pursuit of the Crespi High School product.
Not only is Williams one of the top remaining uncommitted prospects — he is ranked 31st in the 2018 class, according to 247Sports composite rankings — but the dynamic guard would fill a dire need for the Wildcats at the point.
Arizona also desperately needs bodies, having just seven scholarship players set to be part of the 2018-19 roster.
But Williams has an official visit to Oregon coming up this weekend, plans to visit Gonzaga on June 1, and ASU seems to be a realistic option, so getting him to re-up with the Wildcats could prove to be difficult.
Style of play and comfort level are the two most important factors in Williams’ recruitment, Wright told AZCentral (we recommend you read Haller’s full story).
Seeing that Williams isn’t scheduled to visit Gonzaga until June, a decision isn’t expected anytime soon.
