Offers in hand for Jai Williams

This past week we had a chance to get a number of the players from the Hunting Park Warriors on the phone to discuss the current state of their recruitment and a little about their games.

The second player we spoke to was big man Jai Williams, who is a high school teammate of our first interviewee Hakeem Baxter at Philadelphia Electric Charter.

With Jai's size and athletic ability it is no surprise that he has quite a following of schools after him.

Right now he is hearing from St. Joe's, Drexel, La Salle, Temple, Quinnipiac, Virginia Commonwealth and Oklahoma.

A number of these schools have already offered.  He hold scholarship offers from Virginia Commonwealth, St. Joe's, Drexel, La Salle, Temple and James Madison.

While he does not have any favorites at this point, he has been unofficial visits to St. Joe's, Temple and La Salle.

What Jai is looking for in a school is a program that will help him out academically and to work him into optimum shape.

We asked Jai to give a self assessment of his game and he complied.  Jai felt his biggest strengths were his ability to rebound, block shots and post up.  What he felt he needed to work on was his ball handling and mid range jump shot along with getting faster.

Jai is another player who we have seen in person.  While he didn't get all that many offensive touches when we saw him, he was still able to be productive.  He rebounded the ball well and was able to convert offensive rebounds into points, most of which he flushed.

He has solid leaping ability and was able to throw down dunks with both hands and was able to dunk from straight under the hoop without any kind of running start.  

Besides the dunking though, he didn't get to show much offensively.  On one play he had a pretty head fake but failed to convert on the follow up hook shot.

It is easy to see why Jai is in high demand though, and as more schools see him play there is no doubt that he will see his stock go up.
