Troy Williams Narrows List To Kentucky, North Carolina

Apr 29, 2012 11:03 PM

Troy Williams, a top-20 recruit, has cut his list of possible college destinations to Kentucky and North Carolina.

“They’re both good schools,” Williams said. “They’re like the top two programs out there right now, so it’s going to be a hard decision. But it will come down to which coach I like the best.”

Williams is the nephew of amateur-circuit basketball legend Boo Williams, who has ties to both finalists.

“Kentucky plays a fast pace and coach (Calipari) is a good friend of my uncle’s,” Williams said.

Williams said he gets along with North Carolina coach Roy Williams “and some of the players came from my uncle’s team. They get up and down, too, and have a lot of dunks.”
