Trent Williams, a dynamic under-the-radar guard who played in the NJCAA last season, is headed to the Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks to continue his career.
Last season, Williams put up all the gaudy numbers for Gillette, averaging 13.3 points, 7.7 assists and 6.6 rebounds per game. On top of that, he shot an incredibly efficient 57 percent from the floor and 40 percent from beyond the arc.
While the 6-foot-3 dynamo didn’t draw a ton of interest out of high school, and people might sour a bit on the idea of him because he’s ‘only’ heading to the Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks, Trent Williams has a chance to be a player of huge impact the moment he hits Division I hoops.
Obviously, this is especially so in the Ohio Valley Conference.
Also of note, both West Virginia and Missouri were interested in the guard’s services. This isn’t just another junior college talent moving up a notch in levels. This is a rising JUCO, one who began to draw interest from bigger programs, who projects to do well in the OVC.
Williams’ numbers were great last season, but the numbers alone don’t highlight how explosive he is as an athlete and how good he is on the offensive end of the floor. The Skyhawks got themselves a good one.
