Arkansas 4-star prospect names Razorbacks in top 7
Jaylin Williams (23) of Fort Smith Northside looks to pass under pressure from Conway defenders Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019, at Kaundart Fieldhouse in Fort Smith.
Fort Smith Northside center Jaylin Williams has announced he is considering seven schools, including Arkansas.
Williams (6-10, 220 pounds) also listed Oklahoma State, Illinois, Auburn, Connecticut, Texas A&M and Iowa State as part of his top seven.
ESPN rates Williams a four-star prospect, the No. 11 center and No. 86 overall prospect in the nation in the 2020 class.
He was named the Division I player of the year by the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette after averaging 16 points, 11 rebounds and 3 blocks as a junior when he helped the Grizzlies to the Class 6A state title.
Williams, who is one of four in-state 2020 prospects with an offer from the Razorbacks, made an unofficial visit to Fayetteville on June 26. He's expected to make an official visit in the near future.
