"USC will get one of the official visits of 5-11 Christyn Williams of Little Rock, AK, the top ranked player in the 2018 class by ESPN. Williams announced Tuesday night a final five of USC, Connecticut, Tennessee, UCLA and Texas.

Williams said USC coach Dawn Staley is a a major reason she’s strongly considering the Gamecocks at this point.

“What stands out about Coach Staley is that she was a player and has accomplished the things I want to accomplish one day and it’s very rare to find that quality in a head coach.”

Williams has set official visits to USC September 21st, Tennessee September 28th, Texas October 5th and Connecticut October 12th."

Aquira DeCosta (who has said she wants to play with Williams) will also be visiting that weekend.

Players wanting to play with one another is not the end all be all.. but it's important to note here that originally Williams and DeCosta had Tennessee and Baylor in common.. but Williams dropped Baylor and added Texas. NaLyssa Smith committed to Baylor (and I've said all along it's highly unlikely DeCosta and Smith end up at the same school).. so not only is Williams no longer considering Baylor but they also have Smith now. Is that enough to think that DeCosta will not end up at Baylor??? Who knows.. they were believed to be a front runner for her at one point.

Now, Williams and DeCosta both have SC and Tennessee in common.. two schools that also have Jolette Law in common. Law was DeCosta's recruiter at Tennessee..Williams performed a last minute manuever (she was supposed to be visiting ND next week, instead she's visiting SC) and is now considering South Carolina.. and they will both be here on the same weekend? Something is at work here. Although, I believe they are also visiting Tennessee the same weekend as well.

No word specifically. Seems like Dawn just sold her on the opportunity to be the player that can carry SC forward in the post-Wilson years.

SEPTEMBER 25, 2017 BY PHIL KORNBLUT LEAVE A COMMENT


Christyn Williams
USC women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley had a bevy of highly regarded recruits on campus last weekend for official visits. She, of course, has much to sell these days as the reigning national championship coach and future Olympic team coach. That’s just part of what impressed 5-11 Christyn Williams of Little Rock, AR.

“My weekend went great,” Williams said. “We (recruits) had so much fun bonding with not only us but with the players and coaching staff as well. I loved the campus size, not too big , not too small. The facilities were really nice too. The atmosphere from the fans for women’s basketball at the football game was crazy, so I can’t even imagine during basketball season.”

Williams also had praise for Staley and the culture she has built around her program.

“I love Dawn,” she said. “She can relate to us from a player’s standpoint and I think that’s very pivotal to relationships between her and her players. We loved it. It’s a fair ball game as I still try to figure out what’s the best school for me.”

As for how much the visit may have improved USC’s positioning with her, Williams said, “I can’t tell you that.”

Williams also has visited UCLA and has visits the next three weekends to Tennessee, Texas and Connecticut before rendering her decision.

BOOM! Love what she said about the love the WBB players got from the football game. Imagine during WBB season... I hope Dawn closes on these recruits. Would be amazing!!!

I hoped Allisha Gray being back on campus could be a benefit this weekend. Looks like the recruits took notice of the crowd's reaction when they acknowledged Gray's ROY at the game.

I don't think that's allowed anymore: ESPN stop giving tours, and the NCAA cited UConn for setting up a tour for Maya Moore as a secondary violation...

Came across this article dated September 8. EXCLUSIVE: Behind The Scenes With #1 RANKED GUARD Christyn Williams

Most relevant quote:

Quote:
Besides being a fan of both Maya Moore and LeBron James, she also shows love towards other players in her class, especially point guard Destanni Henderson. When asked who she would want to play college ball with, Henderson came to mind.

“We have natural chemistry on the court, and she’s cool off the court,” she explains. “We get along [everywhere].”

With Henderson verbally committed to South Carolina, these two will more than likely face off against each other at some point in their college careers.


Williams is also apparently a fan of Zion Williamson. When asked who she would pick to be her teammate for a co-ed two-on-two tournament, Williamson was her go-to. With both of them being at the top of their class, they would make a pretty formidable duo. Also, Williams' jelly would definitely pair up nicely with Zion's jam.
