ESPN 100 forward Troy Williams has already visited Duke, Georgetown, Kentucky, Louisville and North Carolina, but last week, the four-star senior from Oak Hill Academy in Hampton, Va., made the trip to Tuscaloosa to visit the University of Alabama.
“It went well,” Williams said. “The facilities there and the people there are all nice. Coach [Anthony] Grant was real cool, real down to earth. He’s a young coach, too, so he understands us more.”
Williams considers the head coach one of the main factors in his recruitment, and he and Grant have developed a strong relationship throughout the process. On his visit, the two talked about the future if he were to come to Alabama.
“We just talked about how I could fit into the program, and if I were to come the players that would be around me,” Williams said.
There have been rumors that the 6-foot-7 forward wants play with his AAU teammate Anthony "Cat" Barber at the next level, but Williams says it’s still 50-50 at this point. Barber, a five-star point guard, visited Alabama in June.
