Gonzaga is on a lengthy list of basketball powers recruiting standout point guard Brandon Williams, according to 247sports.com.
Williams originally picked Arizona over Gonzaga, USC, UCLA and Kansas. Williams last week became the third Arizona commit to re-open his recruitment since the Wildcats were linked to the FBI investigation into corruption in college basketball.
Williams, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound point guard from Encino, Calif., is ranked No. 31 in the 2018 class by 247sports.com and No. 40 on ESPN.com’s top 100.
Williams told 247sports.com he’s been contacted by Oregon, Kansas, UCLA, Oklahoma State, Arizona State, Connecticut and Georgetown and expects to hear from Kentucky. Arizona remains in the picture.
Williams is planning at least two visits: Gonzaga and Oregon. The Zags “have been there from day one,” Williams said.
Junior point guard Josh Perkins has been a two-year starter for the Zags, who also have freshmen Jesse Wade and redshirt Joel Ayayi. Gonzaga has commitments from 2018 point guard Greg Foster Jr., 2019 guard Brock Ravet and 2020 point guard Dominick Harris.
