Jerrell Williams shines at Blair tournament
Northfield Mt. Hermon drew the Hill school in the opening game. The Hill school featured former Explorer recruit and Arizona State commit Kraidon Woods. Jerrell did not play Woods head to head basically because he couldn't keep up with Jerrell's speed and motor. Jerrell scored mostly from fast break baskets and from the foul line. He shot 5 for 6 from the line and grabbed almost every rebound in sight. Couple that with 6 blocks and you can imagine the damage Williams inflicted on the Hill School. Very noticeable was the fact that Jerrell wanted to be the leader when the game was still in doubt with about 3 minutes to go. NMH won the game 58-50. Jerrell finished with 17pts, 13 rebs, and 6 blks. Terrell played about 6-8 minutes in this game. He sits behind his brother, and 4 other D-1 players. When in the game he was also active but looked to play defense and leave the offense for other players.
The second night NMH lost to Blair Academy, which features a frontline of Marquette signee Patrick Hazel and Texas commit, Alexis Wangmene. Wangmene is a stud. Long, athletic and strong Jerrell Williams scored 23 pts, grabbed 10 boards and blocked 3 shots against Blair's division one players.
Playing against top competition Jerrell Williams proved to be a very good player. His motor is something La Salle has been missing for some time. Other than Wangmene, Jerrell Williams was the best player we saw in this tournament. He played against recruits from Texas, Arizona State, and Notre Dame and showed he is a high major player.
Jerrell Williams Scouting Report – Energetic, very long arms, a legitimate 6"8. Terrific foul shooter and finisher. Comfortable handling the ball, anywhere on the court. Good defender with quickness. He needs to show he can step out and hit the jumper. He rarely attempted it but in practice showed nice form and hit those shots. Hands are average.
Terrell Williams Scouting Report – Energetic, long arms, plays good defense. Not as polished offensively as Jerrell. Needs to develop offensive game to be a big factor in college.
Cove Nuggets – Jerrell usually wears #25 and Terrell #22. For this game the two had their jerseys reversed. No indication was given why they had the other's jersey on. Perhaps to gain an advantage? Coach Giannini was also in attendance. Terrell Williams was sporting a slick La Salle hat after the game.
