LITTLE ROCK — 2021 Arkansas target Terran Williams (6-4 / 6-5 wing, Barton by way of Marianna, Joe Johnson Arkansas Hawks) took another unofficial visit to Fayetteville on Saturday and was in attendance for the Hogs’ game against LSU. And once again, Williams came away impressed.
“Good, competitive game,” Williams said on Saturday after the Arkansas’s 94-88 overtime loss after the Razorbacks erased a 13-point second-half deficit and actually led briefly in the extra period. “(Arkansas freshman forward Reggie) Chaney was a top player tonight. The Razorbacks have a good strategy and family-oriented vibe.”
Williams, who already holds offers from TCU and Oklahoma State, is drawing strong interest from Arkansas and Auburn with Colorado inquiring. He took an unofficial visit to Arkansas the weekend of Oct. 19-21, which was homecoming weekend when the Hogs played their annual Red-White game. He has also taken unofficial visits to TCU, Oklahoma State, and Auburn.
“It was a great visit and I love the atmosphere of the school,” Williams said shortly after his October visit. “They like how I attack the basket strong, and how I developed my shot. I fit their system because I’m a patient guy on offense and a strong and talkative player on defense, then I can also run in transition.”
Williams is a bouncy slasher with emerging perimeter skill, and he’s a plus-defender. During the prestigious Pangos All South Frosh/Soph Camp in mid-October in Dallas, Williams was rated as the No. 23 prospect out of 261 campers according to Grassrootshoops.net, and he was selected to the Top 30 all-star game.
“He’s a great athlete,” Hawks chairman Bill Ingram said of Williams. “He’s a two-sport athlete (basketball and football). In basketball, he has power-5 athleticism, and I think he’s a power-5 player. He can really attack the basket, and he’s improved his ball-handling and shooting.”
Williams and his Hawks’ teammate, Jalen Ricks, are arguably two of the top three sophomores in the state. Ricks also holds offers from TCU and Oklahoma State, and in addition to his Hog recruitment he is receiving interest from Indiana, Texas A&M, Michigan, and Auburn among others. Like Williams, Ricks has taken a couple of unofficial visits to Arkansas this season. Ricks has publicly stated that Arkansas is his leader.
