Bobcat recruit: Pierson Williams

Brice Jones 13 and Pierson Williams 22

Section Sports.com (part of the Rivals network) who covers California prep sports recently had an article on Taft High school’s Pierson Williams entitled Taft’s Unsung Hero. In that article it mentioned that Montana State basketball program seems to be the most serious contender for his services this spring.

Williams is a 6-4 shooting guard prospect for the powerful Taft high school located in Woodland Hills, California. Taft features two other players that I know have signed with D-1 teams already in book end forwards Bryce Jones (USC) and Deandre Daniels (Texas) both rated as 4 star prospects. Additionally junior point guard Spencer Dinwiddie is also considered to be an upper end Pac-10 prospect. There may be other D-1 prospects on Taft’s roster but I am too lazy to do the research.

This season Williams is averaging 10 points, 2 assists, and 3 rebounds, while shooting 55% from the field, 48% from beyond the three point arc and, 90% from the free throw line. Williams is a deep three point threat who someone told me to compare to Griz Ryan Staudacher but more athletic. He can drive the lane also, but this year main role is to keep defensive from collapsing on Daniels and Jones.

Here is what his coach had to say about Williams from the Section Sports article.

Taylor went on to describe Williams, a 6-4 forward, as “our most steady guy. He shoots it really well, and he’s always where he belongs. He’s the rock. He’s the guy I won’t take out the game, because he covers up for everybody else.”

Coach Taylor also had the following comments earlier in the season.

“I think our best shooter of all-time was Michael Williams (no relation), but Pierson Williams isn’t far behind,” Taylor said. “He can really knock down those 3-pointers, but that’s not all. He plays more minutes than anyone else on the team because he’s the most stable, an X-factor. He’s 6-4, he shoots well, he rebounds well, and he’s really smart. When other guys don’t know where they belong, he is like an orchestrator on the court.”

ESPN had the following short blurb On Williams after the 2009 Maxpreps Holiday Classic

By the way Williams was named to the ten men all tournament team in the 2009 Maxpreps Holiday Classic.

Williams is receiving recruiting interest from San Diego, Montana State and Cal State Bakersfield but as of now does not hold any offers. He is scheduled to take his first official visit with in the month (depending on the play-offs) and is hoping to get an official offer on his visit. Keep your eye out for Taft high school it seems Coach Starr has some very good connections there and we always seem to be involved with 1-2 players a year there.
