Class of 2017 Fort Wayne Snider forward Malik Williams has been an Indiana recruiting target since the start of his high school career.

The Hoosiers tracked Williams, the No. 32 player nationally according to the 247Composite, closely during the July evaluation period. Here’s a look at Williams via Ball is Life, which recently released this video of the rising senior:

    The 2017 class in just Indiana high school bb alone is pretty special. Imagine a class of Williams, Wilkes, Scruggs, Durham, and Jaren Jackson for example. Whoa. Odd how Sport247 has our position with each of these guys (except Durham) as being weak. A positive spin would be that we’re in a position now to sit back and see how guys develop and then focus on the guys that show the most of what we’re looking for. This logic doesn’t explain Durham I admit.

    Good potential. I like how he runs the floor and can shoot. He’s extremely skinny though and many of these highlights are against 6’3 centers at schools like Leo and Dekalb…lets see how he does against guys like Richards and Bamba.

    Nice handle and shot for a big guy; looks like his body control is pretty good too. Needs to add weight but no doubt that will happen. I’ve heard the motor is the potential issue and that is where building the right culture becomes so important. Like the character guys we got now.

    this kid’s stock seems to be rising at a steady rate. too bad it’s looking like a race between msu and ul

    Reminds me of Jared Jefferies in the body and how well he moves for that size.

    It’d be positive, but it’d be false. Crean has been recruiting most of these Indiana boys since 8th grade. The logical spin is to just admit we don’t have great pull with any of these kids, so we’re trying to continue building on our New York pipeline while also spreading the net. It’s not a terrible thing, and I’m not saying we don’t catch an Indiana kid in the end. However, we’re going to have to show continued improvement upon last season to construct any sort of sustainable recruiting basin.
