One of the elite rising sophomore prospects in the state of Arizona is Westview High School's talented 6-foot-3 rising sophomore guard D'Maurian Williams. Williams is coming off a strong freshman season where put up solid numbers on the season. As a result, Williams projects as one of the elite prospects in Arizona's 2019 freshman class.
I had the opportunity watch Williams perform this high school season, and came away very impressed with his ability to play the game of basketball and make plays for himself and others. Williams is an advanced prospect that is able to take the game into his own hands and come up big for his team. Williams is a nice prospect that likes to have the basketball in his hands and make plays for himself and others. A big-time future prospect that should develop into a serious basketball prospect with high major division-I potential over time.
I was also able to observe Williams as a player this spring while playing for his club program, the Arizona Power-Factory 16U team that features many of the state's top young prospects. I was very impressed with this young man's advanced ability to make plays on the basketball court and also his tremendous body for such a young age. Williams has an excellent body for his age that suggests that he will only continue to grow a great deal and develop into a serious college prospect over time.
Williams is a pure-point guard prospect that has excellent size at 6-foot-3 and is still growing a great deal. This young man has worked hard on his game at an early age, and it shows early as he is a very nice floor general with an ability to make plays off the dribble. He has a strong handle of the basketball and is able to handle defensive pressure, while making players around him better - a valuable asset for someone his age. There are very few players his age with his combination of size, strength and skill level.
Williams averaged 8.8 points and 2.3 assists this high school season on a team that struggled to win ball games (6-20), but the future for Westview looks very bright as a result of Williams' promising future ahead of him.
Still a mere rising sophomore prospect, Williams will look to gain valuable experience this spring and summer while playing at the 16U level. As a result, Williams should only continue to blossom as a player and develop into one of the state's elite level talents over time.
I will be keeping a close eye on Williams for the future, as I project this young man as one of the better young prospects in the state. How hard he continues to work on and off the court will only determine just how good he truly becomes.
