San Diego State Receives Pledge From D’Erryl Williams II
D’Erryl Williams II made an oral commitment to San Diego State while on an official recruiting visit, which ended Saturday.
“This is a Top 25 program,” said D’Erryl Williams Sr., his father. “D’s dream is to play in a Final Four. In order to do that, you have to play with a group of players and coach who has assembled something that allows you to do that. And that’s now in play for him.”
Williams is a teammate of four-star recruit Dakarai Allen, who committed to the Aztecs last month.
Williams and Allen have played together since 7th grade and talked openly about continuing that in college.
“I told them it was a great dream but a far-fetched dream,” Williams Sr. said. “I’m never going to tell my kid or anyone else that they shouldn’t have a dream. It’s empowering to have dreams. But I told them the likelihood of it happening is very slim, because there are just so many factors in choosing a college.
“But it happened.”
