Five-star forward Ziaire Williams listed the Arizona Wildcats in his top seven on Saturday, with the other finalists being the North Carolina Tar Heels, USC Trojans, Stanford Cardinal, Duke Blue Devils, Oregon Ducks and UCLA Bruins.
The 6-foot-7 Williams is the No. 7 player in the 2020 class and No. 3 small forward, per 247Sports composite rankings. Williams attends Sierra Canyon in Chatsworth, California, where he will be teammates with Zaire Wade (Dwyane Wade’s son) and LeBron ‘Bronny’ James Jr. this season.
“Significant physical upside with plenty of room to gain strength,” reads Williams’ 247Sports scouting report. “Athletic wing with good size and decent length. Easily should be able to play both big three and small-ball four at college level. Smooth stroke with ability to hit threes off the catch and pull. More of a one- and two-dribble pull-up shooter than slasher, but has quick first step and good touch around basket. Has multi-positional defensive upside. Adding strength and improving ball skills/aggressiveness will take game to the next level. Easy high major talent with significant NBA upside.”
Here are some of Williams’ highlights from this summer:
