Williams lists two favorites

Following the conclusion of the CP3 Elite Guard Camp in Winston-Salem Kameron Williams and his father plan to visit Wake Forest Monday, June 11.

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Baltimore (Md.) Mount St. Joseph shooting guard said the Demon Deacons and Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes are tied for the lead in his recruitment.

"One that I really have contact with is Miami (Fla.)," Williams said. "I have a good relationship with Coach L [Jim Larranaga]. He seems like the best coach I have a relationship with."

"Coach [Walt] Corbean is talking to me the most [for Wake], and I've also had some conversations with Coach [Jeff] Bzdelik, so that's good. They seem like they think very highly of me. It means a lot. I think he's [Corbean] a really good guy and a good coach."

Williams claims scholarship offers from Dayton, DePaul, Drexel, Massachusetts, Miami (Fla.), Providence, Richmond, Rutgers, South Florida, Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest, while Maryland, NC State, Ohio State and Pittsburgh have also shown interest.

The 2013 prospect said he may choose a school at the end of the summer.

He said most schools are recruiting him as a combo guard, while most are pursuing him to play the point. Williams, who is rated as a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, added he can make the adjustment.

"[College coaches like] my movement without the ball, the fact that I don't force shots," Williams said. "I know what I'm capable of. I know what my weaknesses are, and I don't try to play beyond myself. I know my limit."

Williams leads the EYBL in scoring at 22.2 points per game, while his Baltimore Elite team is 12-8.

"I just stay positive about everything, look at everything with the plus side; not the minus and just keeping my head up, encouraging teammates, keeping their heads up even when they're down and just let them know that everything is going to be alright," Williams said.

Along with competing on the EYBL circuit Williams said he will be attending the Kevin Durant Skills Academy and the LeBron James Skills Academy, while also visiting some schools.

"I think I'm one of the hardest working guys in the gym," Williams said. "I don't take a day off, and I just keep working. I live in the gym. I think that's what some kids lack, just staying in the gym and staying hungry and staying humble."

Williams added he wants to play for a school that will push him to his limit, so he can reach his full potential as a basketball player.
