Four-star guard Kenny Williams no longer considering Michigan


Four-star guard Kenny Williams was originally scheduled to take an official visit to Michigan on May 18th, but has trimmed his list to two schools: North Carolina and Virginia.

First reported by ESPN’s Jeff Borzello, Williams confirmed to UM Hoops by text that he’s no longer considering the Wolverines. Williams had also previously been considering Florida, but the Gators appear to have been eliminated with news that head coach Billy Donovan is taking the Oklahoma City Thunder job.

Michigan has been recruiting for one remaining scholarship in the class and now the only target left on the board is five-star wing Jaylen Brown. Brown is down to Michigan, Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and California. Rumors have swirled in recent days that the Wolverines and Wildcats could be near the top for the 6-foot-6 blue chipper.

No decision date has been set, but Brown is one of the few unsigned top prospects remaining in the class of 2015.

    If we don’t get Brown, is Max still an option?

    • EchoWhiskey

      I would guess that’s the plan. No reason Max has to make a decision until Brown does.

      Unrelated, but count me in the camp that thinks the Williams decision has nothing to do with Brown’s.

        I would usually agree, but seems to be so much smoke here doesn’t there? When there are so many coincidences, statements, etc happening all at the second time…one has to

          It seems like they’re rolling out the red carpet in terms of making room, but I doubt anyone knows his decision at this point. I sure hope it’s M.

    The time is now for you Jaylen Brown. You know Michigan is the place for you to develop for the NBA. Michigan wants YOU. GO BLUE!

    • Wayman Britt

      You are 100% correct, UM would turn Jaylen into a NBA player. I hope he and his mother feel the same way.

      Jaylen – come on home and play with family here in Michigan.

        He is more than likely already a NBA player no later Where he goes or even if he a one or done or not.

    Good luck to Kenny. I appreciate that he seriously considered Michigan–kept our name out there. Can’t hurt with future recruiting.
