Perry High School's 6-foot-2 sophomore guard Jalen Williams has been one of the state's top performers this club season, making some noise for hismelf as one of the better prospects in Arizona's 2019 class. Today, after a recent strong performance in Georgia last week, Williams received his first scholarship offer.
The talented and silky-smooth guard prospect has had strong performances all spring and summer, so today Hofstra University made their case for landing the gifted guard prospect for the future - offering a scholarship to Williams.
The offer by Hofstra was the first offer for Williams, whom I expect to reel in many more offers over time. Williams is regarded by our staff as one of the better guard prospects in Arizona's 2019 class - a nice guard prospect with a high skill level and tremendous upside for the future.
While he is a nice looking prospect now, in a year this young man should see a dramatic rise in our 2019 Class player rankings over time. He is still growing a great deal and could get to 6-5 or 6-6 in height when it is all said and done.
I will continue to follow Williams' recruitment closely, and bring you any updates as they continue to develop.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Williams has an excellent ability to create off the dribble and finish plays with a slick handle of the ball. He has very good body control and is able to slash between defenders to get into the lane. Williams also has an excellent shooting stroke with unlimited range on his shot, which keeps defenses honest from anywhere on the floor, and sets up his drives to the basket and his mid-range game. He has a very quick release on his shot also which allows him to get his shot off. Williams has a long, lengthy and rangy body with huge feet and big hands, which suggests that he is still growing a great deal. Williams has extreme upside as a player, which suggests that he will only continue to grow a great deal and could get to be 6-5 in height when it is all said and done, which would intensify his college recruitment immensely. The amount of upside possessed by Williams is glaring and makes him a very intriguing prospect to me.
