Another day, another top-100 prospect off the board.
Kameron Williams, a 6-foot-3 guard out of Baltimore, Maryland, verbally committed to Ohio State and head coach Thad Matta on Tuesday afternoon.
Williams currently attends Mount St. Joseph’s H.S. (MD) and his decision comes in favor of the Buckeyes following a weekend visit to the Columbus-based campus.
The combo guard becomes the second commitment for Matta from the class of 2013, joining Marc Loving, who has been a verbal to the Buckeyes since August of 2010.
Williams visited Miami (FL) earlier this month and many had speculated the Hurricanes were a favorite to land the guard’s services, however that didn’t turn out to be the case. Former George Mason head coach and current Miami leader Jim Larranaga had been chasing Williams throughout his recruitment.
Known for an improving scoring sense, Williams can put up points in bunches, and that could bode particularly well next season with pass-first point guard Aaron Craft still running the show.
The Buckeyes should once again be in the hunt for the Big Ten title in 2012-13 and Matta’s continued ability to land some of the nation’s most prized prospects has benefited Ohio State year-in and year-out.
Williams is nationally ranked at No. 52 overall by ESPN and listed at No. 80 by Rivals.
The guard ran with the Baltimore Elite on the AAU circuit.
