Here is a gut-twisting development for Arizona Wildcats fans.
Former UA point guard commit Brandon Williams is set to take an unofficial visit to Arizona State this weekend, he announced Monday morning on Twitter.

Williams knows what type of reaction this will bring.
“I’m already knowing it’s going to be crazy when i get there,” Williams told recruiting analyst Jake Weingarten. “I see it all over social media. I’m more than excited because they let their guards just ‘play’ and it fits my game”
ASU has been in hot pursuit of Williams since he decommitted from the Wildcats on March 2. Its entire coaching staff made an in-home visit on March 25.
The Sun Devils, who now call themselves Guard U, do have a need at point guard since Tra Holder is on the way out and their three 2018 commits are two wings and a forward.
Williams is the No. 31 player in the 2018 class and No. 7 point guard. He also has received major interest from Oregon, Colorado, and Gonzaga. Arizona is still in the picture, too.
