Hoosiers land first 2010 commitment: Jacksonville’s David Williams

Both Chris Korman of the H-T/Hoosier Scoop and Rick Bozich of The Louisville Courier-Journal are confirming tonight that 6-7 forward David Williams from Jacksonville (FL) gave a verbal commitment to the Hoosiers early this evening.

Here’s the scoop, according to Korman:

“Indiana is just a school that everybody knows, and it is every player’s dream to play at a place like that,” Williams told me moments ago.

Williams plays for AAU basketball for the Atlantic Celtics, an organization that Indiana assistant Roshown McCleod was close with before being hired late last summer.

“I knew coach Ro and knew that he would be part of an exciting team that would want to get up the floor,” Williams said.

If you didn’t see this coming, raise your hand. That’s what I thought. Williams is unranked on the Rivals.com Top 150 and he’s a two-star recruit on Scout. That could be totally irrelevant if he’s a late bloomer and an emerging prospect. Which may or may not be the case. For now, it’s probably best to reserve judgment until we can learn more about Williams.
