The Garrett Tucker Band of NOB Recruiting confirmed what everyone has assumed for a while now; 2013 small forward Troy Williams is officially down to Kentucky and North Carolina. Williams dropped Georgetown from his list despite having very strong ties to the Hoyas program through his aunt and uncle.
Williams told Tucker that Coach Cal called him last week and pitched him the possibility of being the 2013-14 version of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
“Coach Calipari told me I would fit well in their program,” Williams said. “He asked me if I was ready to work hard because that is what it is going to take to play at UK. He also said I have a high-motor like Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, but he is bigger and stronger.”
Williams hasn’t set a date to announce but he plans to do it between now and mid-May.
