Indiana got in late on 2013 forward Troy Williams, but it doesn’t seem to have hurt the Hoosiers.
Williams will take one of his official visits to Bloomington for Hoosier Hysteria Oct. 19-21, his uncle and AAU coach Boo Williams confirmed to Inside the Hall on Friday.
Williams, a 6-foot-6 forward from Hampton, Virgina, is the 30th-ranked player in his class according to ESPN.com.
Indiana coach Tom Crean and assistant Kenny Johnson visited Williams at Oak Hill Academy earlier this month, and made a significant impact.
Boo Williams said IU is “definitely rising” on Troy Williams’ list.
“Tom Crean has done a great job at Indiana,” Boo Williams said. “Crean’s done a great job this summer of coming to watch him in games, being there. And then the history of Indiana just made it one of the schools he’d like to visit.”
Williams also has offers from North Carolina, Florida, Georgetown and Louisville, among others. Boo Williams said he expects Troy Williams to be a spring signing because he “wants to consider his options.”
Williams will also take an unofficial visit to North Carolina on Oct. 12, according to Zagoria.
