NC State has in-home visit with 2019 4-star Patrick Williams

Published

on

As we reported last week, 2019 4-star Patrick Williams was in Raleigh to take his official visit to NC State. The visit must have gone pretty well because just a day later, NC State coaches were visiting him at his home.

Williams is another versatile kid that can spread the floor, attack the rim, or knock down an open jumper. He’s athletic and has a great motor on him. This type of player Keatts has been stacking his team with since his arrival.

Williams is a tweener. Some project him as a stretch forward, while others think he’ll be a shooting guard in college. He is ranked by ESPN as the #46 overall player in the 2019 recruiting class, and the #2 player in the state of North Carolina. They also rank him as the #6 overall shooting guard in the 2019 class.

It’s worth noting that Keatts has 2 scholarships to work with (assuming there is no attrition), and he’s targeting 3 guys right now. 5-star Wendell Moore just finished his official visit (and we talked to him about it) and 5-star ‘human highlight reel’ Jalen Lecque was visiting with Williams this weekend.

We’ll keep close tabs on this situation as it really seems to be heating up.
