Rockwall star Samuell Williamson prides himself on having no limitations to his game.
The 6-foot-7, 190-pound hoops star is known for doing it all for coach Quincy Williams and the Yellowjackets.
“He’s a good midrange shooter with great vision and versatility,” Williams told Texas Scorecard. “He’s played everything from the point to in the post for us and doesn’t miss a beat wherever we put him. His skill set is just that interchangeable.”
Those skills are also enough to have Williamson rated among ESPN’s Top 100 nationally and as the state of Texas’ sixth-best overall recruit by 247Sports.com.
Williamson recently announced that he plans to take his talents to Louisville to play for Coach Chris Mack after he’s done at Rockwall.
But first there’s the matter of the Yellowjackets reaching for their goal of a district title after finishing 20-12 last season when Williamson averaged 23.3 points and 9.7 rebounds to earn first-team Texas Association of Basketball Coaches all-state honors.
“Those are the expectations we have,” said Williams, who has his team off to a 6-2 start in his third season at the helm. “Our goal is to build and get better and better as the season progresses.”
Thus far, Williamson and senior guard Alec Grandstaff have set the tone for Rockwall, averaging 25 and 17 points, respectively.
“I really like this team and the way it battles,” Williams added. “You look at us on paper and we may seem a little undersized but our guys come to work.”
A four-star recruit, Williamson is also averaging 12 rebounds, and along the way earning his coach’s respect and admiration.
“He the hardest worker I’ve ever coached,” he said. “Every day, he’s working on his game, getting up as many shots as he can. He takes this all as seriously as you can.”
According to the Dallas News, Williamson had as many as 33 scholarship offers, including overtures from Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor, Connecticut, Florida, Michigan, Oregon, TCU and Texas
