Troy Williams' Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) Warriors finished their regular season with a 33-5 record, with the losses coming as far away as Honolulu and to talents as prodigious as Chicago Simeon Academy's Jabari Parker.
The 6'7" swingman stuffed the stat sheets in his final few games, carding 10 points, five rebounds and five assists in a win over Covenant Christian and going for 19 points and 17 boards against Greater Emmanuel Prep on senior night. Oak Hill won both games by approximately 40 points.
For the season, Williams averaged 16.2 points, 7.5 rebounds and four assists a game, numbers that were good enough to earn him the Gatorade Player of the Year honor for the state of Virginia.
ESPN recruiting analyst Dave Telep has tapped Williams as a potential replacement for the destructive transition ability of Victor Oladipo, with the only caveat being "whether Williams will do the little things and play a supporting role, which is how Oladipo laid the foundation for his career" (Insider subscription required).
Hoosier fans anxious to get a look at their new prospect will have plenty of chances in early April. Oak Hill will compete in the National High School Invitational in North Bethesda, Md., opening against Montverde Academy on April 4. That game will be televised on ESPNU. If the Warriors advance, the semifinals will be shown on ESPN2 and the final on ESPN itself.
Williams will then head to Brooklyn for the Jordan Brand Classic, where, as mentioned previously, he'll team with classmate Noah Vonleh. That game will be broadcast on ESPN2.
