UofL BASKETBALL | Malik Williams narrows his choices and has Louisville fan in the family

07/26/2016 07:31 PM

The Louisville men’s basketball team has had their eyes on 7-foot big man Malik Williams for awhile now, and have prioritized him in their 2017 recruiting class. Williams is an athletic center who can stretch the floor with a mid-range shot, and also earning a lot of interest from Michigan State and Indiana.

Williams recently narrowed his list of college options to eight programs, and Louisville unsurprisingly made the cut. But apart from his own connection to the Louisville staff, CardinalAuthority.com recruiting analyst Jody Demling tells us that Williams’ mother has been a Cardinal fan for quite some time.
