Troy Williams was a player who has been a relative household name since his freshman year of high school. The nephew of AAU legend Boo Williams had that buzz around him before ever playing a high school game and over the last four years, he has not disappointed. Heading to the nation’s #1 team, expect the legend of Troy Williams to continue to grow at Indiana.
Making the move from Phoebus HS right outside of Hampton to Oak Hill Academy, Williams bumped up a level of competition and his game followed. He showed off a much more reliable jumper from the perimeter, the ability to finish creatively with both hands around the rim, and above average court vision for a wing. Troy is most dangerous in transition, both as a decision maker and finisher at the rim. We still haven’t seen much of a mid-range game out of him, which is something that should evolve as time passes in Bloomington.
With Victor Oladipo‘s impending departure and Maurice Creek going down with yet another injury, there will be an immediate opportunity for playing time on the wing. Will Sheehey and Jeremy Hollowell will see the majority of the minutes initially, but expect Troy to surely be in the rotation by the time it’s all said and done.
