PPU talked with Brandon Williams & got LOTS of info for Wildcat fans

All the info below was originally posted in the Miller went on a special visit to see Brandon Williams last night thread here

Part 1 (Originally posted on 4/30/18 08:24am)

I was able to talk to Williams a couple of times in the past week or so. I asked him if he was going to have a final 2. He said his next announcement would be his final one & would be his team. I joked & asked if he was going to make an announcement on when his announcement would be & he said that yes he was actually going to announce the date he's picking his team, so we'll all know the exact date he'll make his announcement soon.

I asked him about what he thought about the 247sports predictions (They're all picking Oregon) & he said that they're wrong & have no clue who he's going to pick. Williams said 247sports makes their predictions after they talk to the players & he said he doesn't talk to any of the 247 guys.

Williams just got done with his Gonzaga visit & I'll be posting a more on what he had to say after his last visit later today.

Part 2 (This was posted just after Williams announced May 5th as his announcement date)

BWill's final visit at Gonzaga has now come and gone and now we just have to wait for him to decide. Like we said above Williams has made an announcement of his announcement, lol. He's announcing who his team will be on Saturday May 5 at 3:30. Let's get to the rest of what Williams had to say.

I asked BWill about his twitter post of his top 3 schools. In that post he had background music with lyrics that Wildcat fans quickly picked apart. The lyrics said "that's my top 3 in the order" Williams said that Arizona just happened to be the first team that was shown and thought it was crazy how deep people were looking into it.

I asked Brandon what he liked best about Arizona, Oregon, & Gonzaga. He answered the question by telling me what he liked about Arizona & didn't say anything about Oregon or Gonzaga. He did mention that Oregon players Bol Bol & Miles are constantly texting him like crazy trying to recruit him to the Ducks. While I was talking with him a report came out that he had committed to the Zags. He immediately asked who was saying this and said he did not commit to the Zags contrary to the reports.

Finally, I asked him what school he was going to pick. He said that he really doesn't know what school he's going to pick. He did say that his parents might want him to go to a certain school, but in the end he's going to pick the school that he wants to go to.

Part 3 (DWIZZ pointed out that I forgot to add what BWill said he liked about Arizona)
   
I don't know how I missed adding that. I asked Williams, what do you like best about Arizona, Oregon, & Gonzaga? He only answered about Arizona saying. "What I like best about UofA is that the players and coaches treat me like family." and did not answer what he liked best of the other 2 teams. I also asked who his favorite player ever was at Arizona. He said it was Stanley Johnson and then added or maybe Gilbert Arenas.

Part 4 (A little more info on BWill)

I know this is late, but the one positive that Williams said about Gonzaga was that Mark Few was funny. Like funny in a way where he's not trying to be funny, but he was just naturally funny. He said everyone knows someone who's like that. Brandon Williams told me his official nickname according to him is BWILL. I asked Williams what he thought of Arizona's latest commit Justin Coleman and he said that he didn't know much about him and had never seen him play. Asked who he gets along with most on the current Arizona roster & he said Ira Lee & Brandon Randolph are the players he's closest to on the team. When I asked Williams if he thought he was a 1 & done he said "if it takes 1 year it takes 1 year & if it takes 4 years then I'll be in school all 4 years."

If I remember anything else I may have missed I'll be sure to post it here.

When I hear a recruit refers a team as "family". That tends to be the team the recruit usually picks.

Yes, and he has said much of his relationship with SM in the past. I think this back off and look around was a chance for things to settle out a bit and for him to clear his mind that he makes the right choice. Family wanted that especially after the espn story broke. Now that a little time has passed he has a clear vision of his future.
In the end he cannot go wrong with any of the three schools.
I believe his heart is still in Arizona.
The relationship with SM is still strong.
He has close friends on Oregon and Arizona so that won't be the deciding factor.

Does anyone else find it odd that Brandon Williams did not come out and deny the reports from ESPN & the score (ESPN took there tweet down & the score still has there's up) that he committed to Gonzaga? You'd think he would've been quick to squash that like he did when people were starting to say he committed to Oregon after he posted a pick in a duck jersey. I truly believe that the schools themselves don't even know who he's going to pic. He's done a good job of keeping everyone guessing. I keep changing my mind about who he's going to pick. Leaning Gonzaga right now.

All things even it is Arizona hands down!
The crap story made him think and look around.
Now, it comes down to what he thinks about that situation and if he trusts and believes SM.
If not for yhat situation he is still a Wildcat along with several others of the elite status.

Brandon Williams step father previewed Saturdays commitment announcement in a 247sports article below, but you have to have VIP access to read it. Does anyone here have VIP for 247? If so can you summarize what it says? I know it's probably stuff we already know, but I'm just curious.

Here's the screen shot of his deleted tweet. He was deciding on his school choice today with his family. Was this a sign for Wildcat fans?

That tweet was a sign of a prospect realizing that we (fans) hang on to their every word/move/post and try to decipher it.
I want the kid to commit already so that we know who’s left on the board and go after.
