Inside the Hall had a chance to catch up recently with 2013 Cleveland Benedictine forward Mark Williams, who attended Hoosier Hysteria last fall and picked up an early offer from Indiana.

Here are a few quotes from the 6-7, 235-pound sophomore as well as some video from

On his high school season:

“It’s going pretty well. It’s been a learning experience. I feel like me and my team are learning to play through adversity and with each other which is something we haven’t had to do in the past years. We’re a sophomore and junior dominated team. We have one senior.”

On how his game has progressed during the season:

“I am playing okay, but to my standards, I’m not playing how I should. I feel I can bring more to my team with every aspect of the game. Whether it’s leading, scoring, rebounding, so I’m constantly trying to get better in those areas.”

On his interest in Indiana and his thoughts on the program:

“I still have very high thoughts on the team. Not only because of their athletic ability, but because I’ve talked to those guys. I know what Coach Crean is about. I know what Coach Buckley is about. And when you watch their games, whether they’re winning or losing, the atmosphere is just, you would die for it. Anybody would die to play there. I still have high thoughts about the team.”

On other schools showing interest:

“Wisconsin has shown interest. West Virginia has shown interest. Virginia Tech, Ohio State, Michigan State has shown slight interest. Penn State has been in the gym. Mainly the Big Ten.”
