Arizona, Oregon and Gonzaga are the three schools still hoping to land 4-star point guard Brandon Williams, one of the top remaining prospects in the 2018 recruiting class. He’s set to announce his commitment on Saturday afternoon.
Williams’ father, Chris Wright, told 247Sports’ Matt Prehm that his son “really likes all three schools” but a decision had to be made. And the process to come to that decision apparently involved creating a point system based on the pros and cons of all three programs.
“I actually have on the point system an area of what school we feel the safest at for his development,” Wright told Prehm.
The 6-foot-2 Williams, ranked by 247Sports as the No. 31 player in the 2018 class, originally committed to Arizona in June 2017 and signed a non-binding financial aid agreement with the school in November. He de-committed in March, not long after an ESPN report alleged Arizona coach Sean Miller was caught on tape discussing a payment to ensure Deandre Ayton came to Tucson.
If Williams picks Oregon he will add to an already unprecedented 2018 class for the Ducks, one that’s currently ranked No. 3 in the nation. A re-commitment to Arizona would help the Wildcats deal with the loss of all five starters from their Pac-12 title-winning squad.
