Cats add player for 2008-09 season
Billy Gillispie warned Kentucky fans that recruiting never ends on his watch. He wasn't kidding.
The Cats added another shooting guard to their roster on Wednesday, a three-star prospect from Temple Hills (Md.) Progressive Christian. CatsIllustrated.com has confirmed that Donald Williams will join Kentucky's basketball program as the 13th and final scholarship player for the 2008-09 season.
"Kentucky watched me some last year at Progressive Christian, and they really started recruiting me in July," Williams told Rivals.com's Jerry Meyer. "They felt I was a good player and could help the program. It's a really good fit for me, and it's a great program. It's just a good situation, and I'm really excited about joining the program."
Williams was rated a three-star player by Rivals.com but was not ranked in either the Top 150 or positional rankings. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard also had offers from Marquette, St. John's, UAB and New Orleans. He joins DeAndre Liggins and Darius Miller in the Cats' freshman class, as well Kevin Galloway and Josh Harrellson as newcomers this season.
A physical guard, Williams is capable of moving up or down a position and thrives on scoring the ball. He was a top scorer at the Tournament of Champions and impressed with his play at the Kingwood Classic as well.
