Brandon Williams is heading to Arizona.

The 4-star point guard announced his intention to become a Wildcat on Tuesday, choosing Arizona over UCLA, Gonzaga, Kansas and USC:

"They've been there from the beginning, since eighth grade. They were the first school to recruit me," Williams said, per ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman and Jeff Borzello. "The addition with [assistant] coach [Lorenzo] Romar only helped me out. They are starting to do a lot more ball screens, which fits my game. Also, my relationship with the coaching staff is great. That's very important."

Williams is ranked as the No. 32 overall prospect in the 2018 high school class by Scout.com. He's ranked 10th overall at point guard and is the West's top-rated player at his position.

"They need me to be the point guard," Williams said. "They haven't had that guard in a while. They need me to just do what I do now, create for myself as well as for my teammates."

Williams becomes the second class of 2018 player to commit to Sean Miller, joining Shareef O'Neal, the son of Hall of Fame center Shaquille O'Neal. The Wildcats are expected to make a hard push for Marvin Bagley III, the 2018 consensus top overall prospect. 

"Shareef and I are both assistant coaches," Williams said. "We are definitely going to recruit some guys."

Williams is a creative guard who likes to score off the bounce, so he should mix well with O'Neal, an athletic rim runner who finishes well near the rim. If Bagley joins them, he could be set up with the best frontcourt tandem in college basketball.
